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.
The OurBlock project is a 2012 Mozilla Festival Design Challenge with a goal of answering the question, 'What does our block sound like?" For people around the world, radio offers a way to share experiences, culture, local news and critical information while building community engagement through a real time, 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.
The session will be split into three parts:
