Oregon Trail Updates

Oregon Trip 2009

Oregon Trip 2009

For my trip to Oregon this July I hope to use my iPhone to post online photos and audio from the trail for my friends and family.  The last time I was in Oregon I sent regular emails to them and regularly downloaded photos from my digital camera to a laptop for editing and posting online.  This time I’d like to postpone the photo manipulations until after I return and instead just send brief updates using my iPhone.

One tool I’ll be trying out is audioBoo, which lets me record some audio, attach a geotagged snapshot, and upload it to my FriendFeed, Twitter, and Facebook accounts.

However, the snapshot from Audioboo is rather small and it doesn’t allow for check-ins and longer written notes, so I’ll also try using Brightkite.

You should be able to see the various updates on my MEADOR.ORG blog’s left-side column in the “Granger’s FriendFeed” listing.  Of course, you can also just go directly to my FriendFeed.
