My current favourite application is audioBoo. It’s the audio equivalent of Twitter, where users upload short audio clips, detailing the intricacies of their lives. It’s simple: instead of a ‘Tweet’, you ‘Boo’. Current King of the Internet, Stephen Fry is a massive advocate (obviously) as are the usual crowd; tech geeks, musicians, but few brands, interestingly.
But it’s not all plain sailing. It’s all pretty raw; the site is ropey as hell and is prone to sudden errors, and whether it ever achieves mass adoption is another thing. But, it’s certainly a clever, useful and interesting tool. And, if it all sounds a bit of an esoteric medium, there’s a PhoneBoo app, letting people without iPhones boo away too.
