Mobcasting, an interesting idea

Here's a pretty interesting idea, and there's lots of tools now sitting around to make this happen. Andy Carvin spoke about how he started mobcasting (mobile + podcasting + smart mobs = mobcasting) Basically, using free tools like Blogger, Audioblogger, and feedburner, you can make a phone call, leave a voicemail message, and then not only have that MP3 posted to your blog but also added as a podcast to your RSS feed. Neat stuff, but STILL too hard. But I'm tremendously encouraged that these tools can help to cross the digital divide as these tools are even more fully integrated into mobile phones and mobile networks.
