I’m working on a player and ad technology to allow people to generate ‘advertising’ for the weekly weekly podcast.
The idea is that I can split the episode into parts, and grab from a store of advertisements. The ads can be submitted using an online form, or called in as messages over the phone. Once a file is uploaded, you will be directed to a donation page, or once you leave a message you will receive a text message with a link to the donation page.
It’s a dumb way to drum up advertising bucks, and a way to get the users involved in generating content.
I will, of course, monitor the advertisements to make sure there is no offensive material coming in.
