Second Life Recording of EEL Show and GGP Podcasts

So, while I’ve been at wordcamp I see Mike has uploaded our latest
special edition Extraordinary Everyday Lives podcast that we recorded
in conjunction with Dave Gray from Global Geeks podcast.

What’s special about this podcast is it was recorded totally in Second Life.

Dave Gray has recently come into SL and he and I hit it off straight
away. We were both in a funny spot with our respective podcasts and we
discussed the possibility of collaborating on a joint show.

We discussed the various ideas of how to record and tested some
skype/sl combos, nothing seemed to work well.

I then hit on the idea that what we needed really was just a separate avatar who’s sole job would be to sit in SL and listen to the conversation while we used the voice feature of SL to host our joint show, outputting what the avatar acting as a mic was hearing straight to a recording device.

I filled my co-host, Mike, in on the idea and being the adventurous
guy who usually does the sound recording feckery on our EEL show, went
about creating another AV for the occasion and putting my idea in
action. Some test were done between Mike and I and away we went.

Dave Gray did a great job of pre and post production. The whole shebang was a great experience working in a collaborative and creative way to push innovation.

The experience was surreal and a hoot all in one.

You can d/l the show from the extraordinary everyday lives show podcast network website.

quote from Debra Aho Williamson: “[Display advertising] is the ‘low-hanging fruit’ and the real potential of social networks has yet to be tapped.”
