Not Drowning But Waving….

Google WaveSo, I’ve been invited by a fellow AMP member to join the Google Wave preview.

So, what is Google Wave?  Well, apart from an enormous drain on every’s time with yet another social network, most of the time people have told me to watch the hour-and-twenty minute-long video.

But the best description I’ve seen so far is…

Google Wave is, for the most part, a collaboration tool for projects. Consider it a board room of sorts.  A place to work on new files, ideas, brainstorming. It isn’t as much a social media tool as it is a virtual conference room.

Different projects can have different “waves” that allow various members of an organization or collective the opportunity to work as “committees”. And, you can branch conversations to others or work with specific aspects of a project in “private.”

Interesting times ahead…

I’m growing a Mo in Movember

Grow a Mo in Movember to change the face of men’s health

OK, so I’ve been challenged by Peter Chitheroe, over at Suffolk and Cool, to grow a mo (moustache) during the month of Movember (gettit?)  to raise awareness of men’s health issues, like prostate cancer.

I’ve grown a beard a few times before but always shaved it off before the month is out. We’ve started a little late, and with Podcrawl coming up in only two weeks (21st Movember) I dare say some of us will come up with some very poor efforts, but it will be a laugh and we’ll give it a try. No doubt there will be photographs as we go along and some serious p*ss-taking!

If you’d like to donate to the cause then click on the picture above or here! Many thanks.

Anyone got any Grecian 2000?

Tweet and Podcast with twaud.io

Just experimenting with http://twaud.io for tweeting music files of up to 10Mb.

twaud.io

I’ve tried other services such as http://twt.fm and http://twiturm.com in the past.

http://twt.fm offers you the ability to re-use your files uploaded from other places, such as libsyn, youtube or soundcloud.

http://twiturm.com offers you the ability to upload a whole track and creates an RSS feed, but without podcast enclosures.

http://twaud.io offers you full podcast enclosures, so you can plug the feed straight into iTunes, but 10Mb is limiting for music podcasters. Would be great for those submitting audio for NaPodPoMo this year though!

Also seems a better option for non-Iphone users than http://audioboo.fm.

I’m raising money for a Children’s Cancer Charity.

Between Friday 27th and 29th September a bunch of us will be Swooving for 40 hours for 40 different charities.

I shall be Swooving for 10 hours and my chosen charity is Chestnut Tree House, which provides care for children and young people with life-shortening conditions, and their families.

To Swoove means to Sing, Whoop and Move. It’s a great physical and mental excercise and keeps me sane in an otherwise insane world.

If you have heard my podcasts, and have a couple of pounds, dollars, euros, or any other currency spare then please consider donating HERE to the cause. The last time I asked for sponorship was back in 2013, so I don’t ask everyday.

THANK YOU!
