LINK: Blubrry Partners with Audioburst
“This partnership with Audioburst is exciting for our Blubrry customers as I’ve been a big fan of their technology for some time,” said Todd Cochrane, Blubrry CEO. “The audio bursts, automated transcripts and indexing of audio content will allow Blubrry customers to reach new listeners and engage with a wider audience.”
I had to read this article three times to understand what a “burst” was, and I still didn’t get it. So I went to Audioburst’s About Us Page:
At Audioburst, we’re building the world’s largest library of audio content. Every day, our technology listens to, understands, segments and indexes millions of minutes of audio information from top radio stations and podcasts.
By organizing live and prerecorded audio content to make it more easily accessible and discoverable, we aim to power the next generation of listening experiences across web, mobile, IoT and in-car entertainment systems.
If I understand this correctly (and please correct me if I’m off), this is like Pandora, or NPR One, or even the old iTunes Genius. It’s a personalized channel of stuff they think you’ll like.
If I want to listen to NPR, I have my local NPR station inside the NPR App. If I want to listen to music, I have my own playlists. I can’t stand Pandora. Really. I’ve tried. Your mileage may vary of course, but nah. I’m good.
