Forget Tweeting, it’s all about Boo

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.
