Voicemail is "The Next Frontier of Exhibitionism"
PERSONAL PRIVACYJune 11, 2010
The San Francisco Chronicle reports on two new startups with plans to make e-mail and voicemail public. Launched last month, Audioo allows people to share their voicemail messages by uploading them to the site, which then automatically transcribes and tags them. Audioo CEO Ryan Born calls voicemail "the next frontier of exhibitionism" and says that the company is working on technology that would let Google Voice automatically upload all of a users' voicemail to the site as it comes in, the report states. Meanwhile, Cc:Everybody offers free e-mail addresses which, when used, allow anyone to see both the message sent and the user's reply.
