Since I spend almost all of my time shucking it for the man, aka working for a living, I have little time to implement all of my ideas, so I give them away for others to use, learn about, profit from, etc… Here we go again!

{fray} is all about storytelling. People write their stories, and they sometimes have events where they get together and speak/read their stories, obviously the site should offer an RSS feed with enclosures so you can hear the authors reading their stories in their own words…

We all love Woz, and why? Well, I know he had something to do with some fruit company, but we really love Woz because of his old “Dial-A-Joke” service. Bring it back with an RSS feed featuring a new joke everyday!

As for sponsorship, obviously the makers of hard drives will want to sponsor your podcast, I mean, you’ll be filling up those hard drives in no time! We can also look to the manufacturers of audio gear, speaker systems, Slim Devices, as well as software producers who make those great audio apps!

Sponsorship eh? I mean, if I ever go to Prince Edward Island then you know I’ll stop by the Formosa Tea House. The Formosa Tea house should sponsor the Live at the Formosa Tea House show, just look at the Google juice! Try searching for Formosa Tea House

Speaking of those Silver Orange and Reinvented guys, they were discussing asterisk (phone dork!) an open-source PBX system, and how they use it… Since it can save your voice mail as an MP3, it should be dead simple to create an RSS feed with enclosures of all of your voice mail… So, what do to with that? Well, set up a phone number, and allow people to phone in, and say something, then feed that out to the net via RSS. Whammo! You do your audioblog, set up a phone number, people call in and leave comments, and you then provide those comments via an RSS feed…. I think I got that right, makes my head spin a bit…

Ok, so you set up your asterisk system to do comments in audio for your audioblog, with the feed to get the comments, and this all costs money right? Well, you could force the people who call in to listen to an ad before they leave a comment, but should you? Maybe you should just add in some advertisements (in audio) to the feed itself, or at the end of people’s comments… I don’t know, I’m a geek not a salesman…

Hmmm, that’s all I got right now… I just wish I had the resources to implement some of these ideas!
