Law Blogs Using Odiogo to Turn Posts Into Podcasts

Legal Blog Watch -- how about Legal Blog Listen?

Over at the Social Media Law Student blog, we were introduced to a cool new technology called Odiogo that may start to appear more often on legal blogs. In short, it allows followers of a blog's content to become listeners instead of readers.

As the SMLS blog writes,

We understand that sometimes it's hard to find the time to sit down at your computer and read a full article without getting interrupted by something or someone. So why sit down and read our articles? Why not just listen to it?odiogo_logo_195x44

SMLS explains that Odiogo transforms blog posts into audio content, and even lets readers subscribe to receive podcasts of a blog's content. If you'd rather listen to the blog post straight from your computer, Odiogo permits that as well.

A minute of audio is worth a thousand words in a case like this, so visit this page (the post from SMLS quoted above) and simply click on the "Listen Now" button at the top to hear every word of that post. You can also hear Odiogo in use, appropriately enough, on Rick Georges' FutureLawyer blog. The computerized Odiogo voice that reads the posts sounds a bit like the talking supercomputer from "2001: A Space Odyssey," but if you decide you're not a fan of the service, it should be a bit easier to disconnect than HAL.
