Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

We have a couple of projects going on at the Walker Art Center that are audio based. We started off wanting to make audio tours freely available to all of our patrons and we were unhappy with most of our commercial options. We were also concerned that if we used podcasts we would either limit ourselves to patrons who had iPods and who planned ahead to load the files or we would have stock the audio players ourselves.

Well, here's a trend that is just starting to break over the horizion - using RSS feeds to provide audio content.

But any news aggregator that supports audio is equipped to lead you into this new world. specification provides an "enclosure" tag that can be used to specify an audio attachment.

Last week I posted about Dave Gilbert's experiment with podcasting "unnofficial audio guides" at Moma, a project called "Apologia: We love MoMA. These audio guides were inspired by a recent podcasting trend called "sound seeing," in which people record narrations of their vacations so others can enjoy. " Hmm, if they institute an iPod ban, would it be a violation of free speech, elitism, or just be stupid marketing.?

7 Reasons Nonprofits Need iPads

Forum One

Skeptics doubted the iPod in 2001 , but it went on to help revolutionize how people consume music and audio content. The platform lends itself to investments in high-definition movies, high-resolution photos, and audio-clips — stories that help reveal "what your support is accomplishing." Apple's new iPad tablet computer has spawned some mixed reactions. Some over-hype it as "magical" and "transformative."

So, bring your iPods and earbuds, and let’s podcast! general awareness at around 40%, though… people don’t necessarily know they are consuming a podcast, audio embedded in rss etc. if you are recroding with multiple people, you can record them to separate audio files so you can edit more easily.

A Month with the Palm Pre

You also need to decide whether to use iPod-style folders, which some people seem to hate (I'm not using them). It can be used to record audio as well, although it doesn't seem to respond to an external mic. I've had my Palm Pre Plus for a little over a month now. I wrote up my initial impressions after having it for a week. Overall, I love it except for Outlook sync. My major problem with the Pre is due to its lack of a built-in sync with a standalone/desktop copy of Outlook.

One of the things I learned in my experimenting with online audio conversations with others who work in the npo sector is that any way we can make things scannable and quick to listsen to is good.

I have the first few steps to get started now with audio. I'm still dancing on the edges between action and reflection, but wanted to get down some of my evolving next action steps and questions for reflection. It is hard, but if I don't do it now, I'm afraid I'll loose forever. These are in no particular order!

Why Museums Need Nike+: Tracking, Gaming, and Architecture of Participation

Museum 2.0

Nike+ is a combined iPod and shoe sensor product that allows users to track every step of their runs. This means you receive real-time audio data while running about your progress (updates each mile), and later, can review your run stats online. On the first level, we're talking shoes and iPod only. Yes, the iPod nano (required for Nike+ use) is functionally a handheld, but it is smaller and more versatile than the devices many museums use for personalized experiences.

But fear no longer!

Game Friday: Do Games Have to Be Fun To Be Good?

Museum 2.0

The goal isn't to have fun as much as to pass the time--and games can fill that role as easily as books, ipods, or dropped cell calls. There are lots of experiences in the museum that are "boring," or, to use a less incendiary word, typical--reading text, watching film, listening to audio. Two very interesting articles today by Ian Bogost , courtesy of Gamasutra , about the potential of games as a more generalized medium for interaction with content.
