Spamradio: turning spam into a radio show
« on: July 30, 2006, 12:43:33 PM »
listening to this will give you a headache but its such a cool idea how can you not love it.

Spamradio is a non-profit making project which is focussed on turning spam (junk) email into an Internet audio broadcast.
2. Why?

This is the most frequently asked question (if you can believe it). There are many reasons that we felt inspired to create spamradio, but this is the main one:

Everybody hates spam. Mass-marketing junk email is the bane of the Internet. But it thinks very highly of itself. It invades your inbox every day with a sense of confidence. There is always a new sales pitch -- a new way that you can improve your life, if only you will take a few minutes to read. Anything this important shouldn't be ignored. Anything this important deserves its own radio show.

Ah, yes, I was afraid it'd be using some crappy text-to-speech and so it is. It'd be much more listenable if it were being read by that guy who announces movies. ;) At the least it'd be nice to have a more pleasant auto-reader voice. Interesting idea though.
