Blogworld Expo 2009 – Getting Buzzed by BuzzVoice

Question – how do you get attention at Blogworld Expo if you’re a bootstrap start up and can’t afford the money and resources it takes to buy a Blogworld booth? Answer – you come to the show as an attendee and corner every big name blogger you can find and hope they will listen to your pitch. One attendee who did just that was BuzzVoice and their new iPhone app is sure to cause a lot of buzz in the blogsphere.

BuzzVoice will read out loud, the contents of your favorite blogs. The service automatically collects the news and blogs you wish you had time to read – and converts them to audio in real time – so you can listen to them on-the-go while you do other things. BuzzVoice works on your iPhone, iPod touch, regular iPods/MP3 players, and your computer. However, the iPhone app is definitely the coolest feature.

In addition to listening, you can view text, pictures and video, and share talking stories with friends via email, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and other social sites. Coming up next – a BuzzVoice widget for bloggers to install on their blogs that will read your contents to your readers.

  7. Hey John,

    I have heard about this Buzz voice from your blog firstly, and later on i serached about it on the internet and to my surprise, this is really a wonderful tool.

    Though it is mainly for the people who have disability to read. But it can be very useful if used properly.

  8. Hey John,

    1. When I saw the video, my first reaction was thinking how awesome it would be for people who are visually impaired. It is awesome to see all the ways we are able to help those with disabilities to enjoy some of the same things we have.

      (I just realized on my last comment I said hearing, not visual.. man I wish there was an “edit” button…)

  9. That looks pretty sweet and extremely handy. Sometimes it is really hard to keep up with all the blogs I read, so being able to listen to them while I do other things could be very helpful.

    The widget could also be very useful for the hearing impaired. I’m surprised they you didn’t discuss that angle of the product.

  10. John,
    The Buzzvoice guys have a nice application…

    But, someone brought a farting elephant to BlogWorld…

    It came from another bootstrap start-up with a connection to elephants…
    (just a little self-promotion)

  11. Now that one looks really like a useful gadget, also a bit more portable then the Nabaztag-thingie 😉 SY

  12. Dang, that company is pretty bad ass at marketing 😀 If they got your attention, I’m sure they will be really good very soon!

    -Mike
