  • Music:

Weblogs as radio.

Radio Vox Populi takes text from random blogs, uses speech synthesis software to convert the text to a sound file, and then streams the sound files -- interspersed with various shortwave noises -- over the web. The end result sounds like this.

It's interesting, in an eerily hollow kind of way... like a leaking emotional bucket that never completely empties and never really gets filled. It captures the endless sucking sound of the weblog void.

Makes me wish for a more generic, customizable tool that you could use to send webpages to a service like this. It would be cool to listen to my friend's list...
