Heading To Audioboo HQ
Downcast v Audioboo 2 ? @downcast @ Audioboo
for downloading audioboos ?
Since I only use ios devices I've no problem with cross OS operation. But I've never checked to see if Downcast would remember listeneing places between devices !
AB Download is a mere accessory compared to the full suite of features you get with Pocket Casts or Downcast. I haven't seen Downcast remember where I left off in an episode when I rejoin a segment while using a different operating system.
@Topgold ... You reckon Pocket Casts is better than Downcast .. and Audioboo download ??

First AudioBoo Post
time to say goodbye...?
Checking out audioboo app on my iPhone.
@miuzu that was from my iphone, with noise in background. Do wish i could post straight to twitter, FB, LinkedIn. Now I have a second step when I get to a computer.
@wetalkyoutalk Are you posting to FB from the app? How are you incoporporating it in your blog? Ideally posting info to your communities with a link back to the blog work best for driving traffic to your site. So you want the audio embedded to keep visitors at your blog. ...oh I just visited your blog now - you are on blogspot so there must be a plugin that embeds it. How are you doing that? I wonder if you can embed to wordpress or drupal sites? You have a good post on audioboo I should share: http://wetalkyoutalk.blogspot.com/2010/09/share-your-voice.html Thanks!

Speech Impediments - unheard boos :(
Talking about those people who possibly listen to audioboos but because of a possible speech impediment may never be "heard " ...
Great boo, I would encourage anyone and everyone to boo. It reminded me of two stand up comedians I have heard who have speech impediments (due to cerebral palsy I think). I would like to feature some clips of them in a boo but I don't know how to do clever things like that so I shall post a link to their websites and suggest people look them up on youtube instead. I think they are great role models for anyone with a speech impediment who is nervous about speaking in public.

for @jessiepp and others: magic taps. What are they and where they can be used.
Should Communities Be Moderated?
I've run several communities myself. Currently www.playstuff.net We've always had a simple rule - Friendly Respect. It covers losts and works as long as the moderators are moderate :) I embrace the liberty and communicative excellence of the internet - and am instinctively a libertarian. However, coming from a game community admin background, I would say I am in favour of peer censorship. To state the obvious, the net is very different from real world, especially when it comes to inter personal relationships. In order for a platform that I would class as 'for the people' work well, we need to be confident that when we recomment our uncles, grandmas, mothers, etc, keep up with what were doing through our AudioBoo's, it would be nice to think there was a civilised code of practise - simply showing each other friendly respect - by that measure, common sense can deal with most things. Having a 'inappropriate' flag could be ideal....but should have a threshold - so it would take, say, 5 people to flag your Boo for it to be auto moderated. A simple appeal process may work. It may be labour intensive. I'd advocate keeping it simple for now. I'd also implement a 3 strikes and you are out rule. If 3 of your Boo's are flagged over 5 times, you are IP banned - maybe that where the appeal process could start. I don't think this is anti - liberty. After all. AudioBoo is a free service, offered by individuals who have a right to request those using it are doing so considerately. Interesting Boo btw - added 8)
I've noticed a few very abusive boos being targeted at other users. What seems to happening is two different crowds are using AudioBoo. On the one side there are people using it as a kind of instant audio chat service, where users can meet each other, have a bit of banter, maybe a bit of flirting, and generally have some fun. And that's all cool with me :) However, on the other side people are using the service like yourself, as another channel through which to communicate with their existing audience, covering very varied niche topics. So naturally, the people from the first crowd are going to find someone who's harping on for 4 minutes about web design really boring making them a target for abuse. A couple of possible suggestions might be to opt out of having boos published to the 'public timeline', or maybe the introduction of channels so people can hang out with people sharing their interests and reasons for using AudioBoo.
I've noticed it's suffering from another problem. No one seems to comment. They could lessen this problem by not forcing people to register in order to leave a comment.

I've got a lot of little things to figure out, but by in large I like it.
