Interview With Montana State Coordinator Stan Jones

Listen below to telephone interview with WTP Montana State Coordinator Stan Jones.

this is an audio post - click to play

This interview with WTP Montana State Coordinator Stan Jones was recorded using the Odeo audio recording system. Then I used the audioblogger.com player button to hotlink to the audio file. You can also listen to the interview on the Odeo flash player here. Notice that we did get almost 12 minutes of uninterupted audio recording. I imagine that we may have been able to go on for maybe 20 or 30 minutes or maybe even longer without any problem. I'm still experimenting with the Odeo recorder and testing out its reliability. The Odeo recorder is free which is always a good thing. Maybe we'll be able to get some use out of it. The one drawback that I see with it is that it does not automatically post to the blog. We'll keep at it and see how things go. Thanks for listening. Stay tuned for more.

Need Contact Information For Regional Directors

If anybody has contact information, telephone number and email address, for any of the Regional Directors listed in the left hand column of this blog please leave that information in the reader comments for us. Need Dan Anderson, Matthew Phillips, Alex Petroski, and Greg Post. Thank you.

WTP Blog Audio Solution

The capability of long feed, reliable, remote posting audioblogging is essential to having a good, informative, and useful blog.

To date we have experimented with audioblogger.com which gives us the remote posting capability but not the long feed or the reliability.

We have also experimented with Odeo which gives us the long feed but not the remote posting capability, and the reliability is still in question.

Both of the above mentioned services are free.

The best audioblogging solution, however, that I am aware of at this time comes from audioblog.com. This service has been proven to be a very reliable long feed remote posting audioblog service as seen at triallogs.blogspot.com. The only real drawback to this service is the cost of $4.95 per month.

I would submit that by incorporating the audioblog.com service we could greatly improve the quality of the WTP Congress blog.

I sent the following email to National Director Tim Randolph.

Audioblog.com has the best audioblogging solution on the market at this time.

It has been used with much success at triallogs.blogspot.com covering tax trials.

It is not free. It costs $4.95 per month.

Does the WTP Congress have $4.95 per month in its budget to cover the cost of this premier audioblogging service?

Conference Bridge Test Concluded At This Time

Ok, that was a pretty good test. I got the hang of setting up a free teleconference bridge and recording it with the Odeo recorder.

I think the Odeo recorder quit recording though about half way through. It may have the same problem as the audioblogger system that always stops recording after awhile causing you to lose a lot of recording time when you thought you were recording but when in fact the system has stopped recording.

We'll keep at it and see how it goes. We may have to go with the $5 per month audioblog.com system which seems to be very reliable at least.

Here are the audio recordings from the test tonight. It's just me talking and listening to hold music from the conference bridge that noboby joined. We'll try it again and see if we have better luck then.

Also the Odeo Audio Flashplayer doesn't seem to be showing up at this time. They may have some problems with that too. Odeo may not yet be ready for prime time. We'll keep testing and see how it goes.

Open Audio Message To Tim Randolph, Terry Bressi, Bob Schulz, And All WTP Congress Members

Contact Your Local Coordinators & Volunteers

Below is an open audioblog message to the members of We The People Congress. In the audio message Doug Kenline talks about the need to get the blog going now, the plan to get the blog going right away, and the capabilities that a good blog needs to have to be effective.

Doug specifically addresses the need for a good blog to have audioblogging capabilities. He talks about how here at this blog we now have unlimited 5 minute segments of audio for free. He talks about the cost of having free unlimited audioblogging capabilities as provided by www.odeo.com.

Doug talks about audioblogger versus audioblog.com. He talks about triallogs.blogspot.com and the traffic that they have been getting. He talks about the free sitemeter, reader comments, two-way interactivity, left and right hand column, the header, free telephone conferencing, posting the audio of the teleconference call on the blog, and other technical aspects of a good blog for good blogging success.

Doug talks about the free cost of this prototype blog verses the projected cost of the finalized blog. Listen to the audio below.

WTP Congress Blog URL Web Address

I have reserved this domain name as well in case the members of the Congress might like it better. givemeliberty.blogspot.com was my first choice but that was already taken. I had bobschulz.blogspot.com already set up so I just decided to use that one. Then while working on that one I thought of wtpcongress.blogspot.com which was available so I have reserved that domain here at this time.
