Hi michael, an interestin comment you made about your experience with Audio blogging, - you mentioned that you think that audio blogging creates a blogging experience that isnt as reflective or as "deep" as a text blog. I suspected as much, but its interesting to hear it from someone else. - i suppose that its a trade off - perhaps you get greater audience participation or connection through the audio posts on your text blog than you would with pages and pages of text. - i suppose it boils down to what is more important. the insights gained from creating the blog, or the insights gained from sharing your thoughts on your blog...

cheers and beers..

Pete

Thanks for dropping by Pete. I'm not so sure about audio posts getting greater audience participation. Maybe on the listening side, but I know from some years of dabbling with web voice applications that many prefer the more silent and considered medium of text when it comes to producing (ie not just listening or lurking). Audio (voice) posts require people to be confident about spontaneous input - especially of course in synchronous mode.

yep. that's what I meant. I was thinking along the lines that *some* of my students find reading a chore......
