iTrip and Media Activism

My friend and colleague Micz Flor points me to this very interesting add-on for the iPod which basically turns it into a tiny, easily concealed FM transmitter.

Micz, who understands digital media deeper than just about anyone on the planet, was pretty interested in uses for this that may not have been in the original design spec; broadcasting in refugee camps, for example, or anywhere where the population density is high enough for an admittedly limited range. Then again, he’s probably looking into ways to hack the hardware and boost the range.

Yet one more reason to lust after my own iPod. Maybe I should put up my own wishlist, like the camgirls do šŸ™‚
