Online Audio...Offline and Everywhere

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, October 11, 2000

Digital audio, when and where you want it. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bloomberg Bootcamp. To your kids... digital audio means music... .to you, it can mean a whole lot more...

"For a lot of people Web audio means MP3 music, most people don't know there is significantly more content on the Web that comes in a streaming media form... arguably a hundred more times content in streaming media form... and we believe that as business professionals in particular, we are very interested in the content that is personally relevant to our interests."

Philip Monego, CEO of Voquette... a company that is pulling together a wide variety of interesting audio content... and letting users listen to it from PCs or save it on just about any kind of audio device on the market...

"We have about a hundred fifty thousand hours of all audio content that's available on a daily basis. You can personalize the content that's most interesting to you. I can actually go onto Voquette.com, under My Voquette I could subscribe to the content that I care about by just clicking on it and using the Voquette Media Manager, which is a free piece of software that runs on the personal computer, I could select what time I want to have that content recorded and on what device I want to listen to it."

Monego has been involved in the start up of almost a dozen high tech firms... and was the original CEO of Yahoo. You can find more information at Voquette.com. Bootcamp, I'm Fred Fishkin, Bloomberg News.
