As I explain in today's podcast...

Two features I want to add to twittergram.com, asap. Permalink to this paragraph

1. A telephone interface. Remember the use-case with a driver in a car, wanting to send a brief message of love to his or her pal, alone at home? Odeo, the company that Twitter grew out of, has this software. BlogTalkRadio, Jott, and others, have it too. A simple feature that allows such a service to send an XML-RPC message to the TwitterGram web service is all that's required to make the connection. Permalink to this paragraph

2. A Flash module that records an MP3, as a standalone app, or to be embedded in the twittergram home page. This removes a step in the "authoring" process, having to find and launch an MP3 recording app, and then save the result to disk, then find that file in the web page. All that can be reduced to a single step with a Flash module. Permalink to this paragraph

I have several other items on my to-do list, that I won't need help to accomplish, but these two sub-projects are outside my reach.  Permalink to this paragraph
