Join the adventure! Join the action! Join Team Rawvoice at BlogWorld and New Media Expo!

Yo! We’re coming for you. The whole entire RawVoice team is coming to BlogWorld and New Media Expo Oct. 15-16 in Vegas! We know that you, our community, is psyched to not only see us, but talk to us, touch us and share ideas at our booth in the exhibit hall at Mandalay Bay!!! . . . Oh, what’s that you say? Why should you be excited about hangin’ with lil’ ol’ us? Well lemme tell ya. It’s because we’re totally bad @$$!

That’s right, like, remember when Sly Stallone says, “We are the shadows and the smoke in your eyes?” Oh, yeah. We identify! Cuz we’re the nerdy men/women way below you’re standards that walk up to you in a bar and ask you to dance anyway. Point is, ammunition such as our PowerPress Plugin, which seamlessly extends a WordPress blog to a podcasting engine, and our easy-to-use super stats system, are only a couple of the weapons we’ve got out there for ya as your own personal digital media powerhouse!

“We blow away”  — or at least take a mean slap at — “anything in our way” . . . as in, your way. And when it comes to watching, branding, growing and monetizing digital media, be it our expansion to mobile devices such as iPhone and Android, or set-top boxes such as Roku or Boxee, yeah, things are blowing up!!! … um, quickly expanding in a healthy, productive way.

And, yeah, here’s where you’ll find us:

Get your bad on come see us at BlogWorld and New Media Expo Oct. 15-16 in Las Vegas! Yo, we’re pumping our fists and stoked and excited because we are indeed, ahem, The Dependables! Aka, Team RawVoice! And if this weren’t bad @$$, adventurous and exciting enough for ya, well, we’ll also have drawings for Roku digital media players.

RawVoice: Are you in this picture?

Boxee and Blubrry: It’s a Beautiful Thing!

Atteeeention! Without further ado, (drum roll goes here) “Introducing Blubrry on Boxee!” Oh, heck yeah, we’re a little “over the top” and excited and here’s why: Blubrry has an application that runs on the Boxee platform, which downloads movies, television shows and your digital media from the Internet onto your TV. That’s right! We’re providing our digital media creators, listeners and viewers yet another avenue to be seen and heard! And we all love a little — or even a lot more — attention.

Boxee will have hardware available in your favorite electronics stores in the coming months. But if you don’t want to wait, all you have to do is install the free software on your computer and connect it to your TV with an HDMI or DVI cord (depending on the computer you use). You can use an Apple remote or one of several PC remotes available to navigate to Boxee. So, what’re you waiting for? Give Boxee a try, seek out your favorite shows, and let us know what you think!

Yup. As always, RawVoice and Blubrry are out there on the leading edge of media technology looking out for your best interests. This is just one more step in the evolution of alternative distribution capabilities for RawVoice and our family of media sites. Stay tuned. There’s a lot more coming up!

Roku Like a Hurricane!

Exciting news Blubrry Podcasters! Blubrry is proud to announce the launch of the Blubrry Channel on Roku. The channel is live with 200 shows and we’ll be adding more shows throughout the coming weeks as we qualify your podcasts.

The Roku Digital Video Player offers your shows unprecedented exposure — seen and/or heard directly on your audiences’ television sets. Sit back in your Lazy Boy and watch your favorite video podcast or clean the house and listen to your favorite audio podcast directly through the exclusive Blubrry Channel on Roku.

And, trust us, that’s only the start. This year marks an apex in the evolution of alternative distribution capabilities for RawVoice and our family of podcasting sites. Keep an eye out: We plan to launch other alternative distribution applications in the coming weeks and throughout the year.

Are you ready to Roku? We’re thinking yes! Let us know what you think!

Excellent Podcast Discussion

RSS inventor Dave Winer gave a speech yesterday at the Public Media Conference in Boston that I think is worth a listen.

Dave talks about the requirements for a more desirable podcast player, touches on the role of social media in politics and answers questions from the audience members at the event.
