Jane SoundCloud Voices

SoundCloud Voices is a new weekly Community feature focusing on new spoken word creators found on SoundCloud. It might be a podcast, radio show, audio book, interview, audio messages, a poem, anything! Keep an eye out every Thursday for a new post.

      

What happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas…that is, unless you find some way to capture the moment. Luckily, as hundreds of tech-reporters converged on Sin City for the annual Consumer Electronics Show (also known as CES), SoundCloud’s mobile app helped them capture some great interviews and conversations on the show-room floor.

One reporter interviewing folks with his phone was Matt Berger, of the popular US radio show MarketPlace. He continuously updated MarketPlace’s Tech-blog by using SoundCloud to post interviews directly from the show-room floor. Check out some of the interviews he captured as he browsed through booths of high-tech boom boxes, smart phones and 3-d printers.

 

Reporter Nathan Olivarez-Giles was also in the thick of it at CES. Nathan is the lead writer for the L.A. Times Tech-blog, and spent some time chatting about the future of web-connected cars with Ford’s Venkatesh Prasad.

 

Finally, SoundCloud user Robert Scoble was also at CES, broadcasting interviews live over the Internet using Flipzu (learn more about how SoundCloud and Flipzu are integrated here). While wandering through the depths of techie-wonderland, Robert stumbled upon an unlikely character. Check out the track below to find out which rock star is also an aspiring tech-geek!
