We The Audiobook

A readers' audio version of Dan Gillmor's We The Media (don't miss the blog) is not just desireable, it's necessary, yes? AKMA organized such an effort for Free Culture, and has useful information about what software to use, how to format ID3 tags, etc. Niall Kennedy kicked things off by recording the Introduction, which I did too before I realized Niall had this covered. Niall got the ball rolling and has offered to be the repository, so send your links his way. As best I can, I'll update this post to serve as an index as well. There's an Introduction, 12 chapters, and an Epilogue. (Watch all the blawgers pick Chapter 10.)

*For the time being this was the best way I could figure out to upload the MP3 I recorded (It's too big to upload to blog*spot, which has a roughly 3MB limit, but I'm not thrilled with putting it on .Mac.) Suggestions for improvement welcome.
