Skypecasts : Live Audio Blogging
Last week, internet telephone service Skype announced Skypecasts – a service that allows us to 100 people to join a tele-conference. Beyond the practical business use, it seems that Skypecasts offers a new way to audio blog and therefore reach an audience.
Skype already lists pages of Skypecasts that anyone can join – Irish language chats, church-casts, business briefings and tech webcasts. It’s like call in radio on the web – and the advantage is that the host can record the conversation and post it in podcast format to iTunes or their blog.
