When the Levee Breaks

It's been quite a week in New York. As I prepare to head back to England I thought I should let regular readers of my blog know that I may not be blogging as frequently over the coming week. Besides shaking off jetlag and attending to a various odd jobs, I need to finish writing my paper for the Digital Communities conference.

If I find some spare time today I may experiment with my second audio blog; even if it's just a test of Audioblogger's features. If you missed my first audio blog, you can get it by clicking on this link to see and hear what happened three weeks ago. I'm still quite surprised that no other Malta-related blog has explored audio yet. Perhaps someone has and I'm not aware of it. So, if you know of any other Maltese blog that has used audio at least once, please let me know.


UPDATE at 2:25pm (EDT): Since posting the above entry I've managed to test the service. The actual link to this audio blog appears above and/or in the blog entry after this. What you'll hear if you click on the graphic link is me speaking in Maltese for less than a minute.

Comments and questions are very welcome.


UPDATE at 6:15pm (EDT): I'm in the Terminal 4 Departures Lounge at JFK Airport in New York. Yes, I'm blogging at this time thanks to a free wifi signal I picked up just outside one of the executive lounges from one of the many airlines that fly from this terminal. Between the earlier test and this experience I can safely say that it's really easy to blog without being tied down to my computer somewhere I don't really care to be. The possibilities offered by this technology are quite exciting. Naturally, there's more to it than just the cool factor. What matters is what we do with it. I'll stop here for now because I have a flight to catch.

No eternal reward
will forgive us now
for wasting the dawn.

I've posted audio clips of myself playing the piano twice, on March 1st and March 28th.

Great! That's good to know MaltaGirl. It's quite interesting to see music that wouldn't otherwise be heard anywhere in public appear on a blog.

Still, I'm also interested in audio blogs with people speaking in Maltese. I'm even interested in an audio blog where someone's speaking about Malta in another language, or a Maltese person speaking in a language other than Maltese.

Audio is sound, not talking ;-) but I get what you mean.

I don't like my accent so I won't audioblog myself speaking, in whatever language. Unless it's for a good reason.

If you're so interested in audioblogging, you might also like podcasting. I haven't yet heard of a Maltese podcast, although that doesn't mean there aren't any, lol.

The closest I've ever come to it is downloading recorded shows from Christian LightRadio's website.

I think you should explore podcasting Ton, after all, you're already a radio broadcasting veteran.
