Listening to the People

I'm not sure how widespread this is in the blogosphere yet, but in the May issue of Reason magazine there's an article about LibriVox, a new venue for common-based peer production.

While Wikipedia focuses on articles, LibriVox is about audiobooks. Anyone can record a reading of any source in the public domain and these recordings are distributed for free. I'm currently listening to one Jim Cadwell read the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America. He's quite good and it makes me wonder how I'd do.

Once I get a microphone I might just give it a try. Looks like no one's working on the Wealth of Nations....
