Help answer the question, “What does our block sound like?” and enable individuals to come together online to create and participate in the power and passion of neighborhood community radio.
This digital community radio service will focus on developing a continuous listening experience for sharing local news, information and culture while building audience engagement through a collective social experience.
Building on SourceFabric's Airtime open source radio automation software, APIs from SoundCloud and Twilio and open web technologies, MozFest hackers can help design and develop features to create a platform that delivers real time continuous listening, a shared participatory audience experience and social community development.
This session will be split into three parts:
Part 1) This.IsOurBlock: an introduction to community-driven radio efforts around the world and the goals for this project at MozFest
Part 2) Idea and Feature Development: generate ideas and new features that focus on audio content workflows, audience participation and content creation and a highly social user-experience.
Part 3) Team-Up and Hack: Build collaborative teams based on individual skill sets represented at the session and hack on new features and new designs for OurBlock and Airtime
