The service is still in early beta — or “alpha,” to be precise — and so there’s plenty of work yet to be done to smooth over the site’s functionality and user interface, but Voxci definitely has promise.
Think of Voxci as an audio alternative to del.icio.us, the popular social-bookmarking site where users tag, comment on, and share interesting links from around the web.
Here’s how Voxci works:
And that’s it. Your post is now available for viewing and listening, as your audio streams through a simple Flash player. Here are my Bryper posts to date.
You can, of course, search your own bookmarks as well as others’, and search on specific tags. Voxci also offers an RSS feed of all your posts — here’s mine — and an embed code, making it easy to pop your entries into your blog, just as I’ve done here.
Took a look and listen to my first Voxci audio bookmark, which I’ve included above. The photo is from a baseball game I took in with Shel Holtz last month.
I think Jack’s onto something here. Boomarks become infinitely richer when there’s an audio description to go along with them. As an example, listen to Steve Garfield’s story behind the story of the “Candy Girls” photo he posted to his Flickr account.
