'Hear you are'

[murmur]is a collection of audio stories about specific geographic locations. They are available on a Web site, but more interestingly, they are also available in designated places at the sites themselves. In situ, interested murmurers can call a posted mobile cell number and hear the recording. Online, there are maps of several Toronto areas (one of these is above). On the maps are circles indicating the story locations. They are, of course, clickable to bring up the audio. I'm thinking of lots of applications for something like this... FYI: I was reminded of this project by Danny Sanchez' Journalistopia blog, which has been covering the ONA conference this past week (sob -- I couldn't go this year because of other commitments so I'm living vicariously).
