I wish we could do audio posts... or even video posts... instead of having to type this much. Only for the reason that my fingers hurt from typing a LOT today. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if we started discussing through audio posts in myLot? Do you think it would work? Just hit record, ask your question/speak your mind, post. Hit play we hear what others have to say. No more excessive typing... You think if it ever comes to that, would it take something away from the "myLot experience"? Do you think you'd echo B.B. King's sentiment that "the thrill is gone"?

Hi Sisi! That's actually a cool idea! This can actually bring us closer. Having to hear your voice certainly makes me thrilled. But the flip side is the intriguing part of mylot would be lost to great extent. Intrigue and mystery certainly has a charm of its own.. smiles...

Haha... I think my high-pitch little girl voice would drive you away. I don't hear myself talk like that in real life but when I watch personal videos, it comes out like that. And I'd be "what's wrong with this little girl?". Intrigue and mystery sounds like Clue. But seriously, I agree with what you said about losing that part. It's not only my fingers that are working against me but my brain as well.

Things like this can definitely make things interesting but they also require a LOT of storage space and monitoring content becomes really hard too. Then there are issues with copyright for audio because people would end up putting music etc on here as well. Being able to have speech to text functionality would be great but maybe placing audio posts would not be overly well received either because it would always be a one sided conversation! lol. We can at least put links to videos and things here for now!

Personally, I would not participate at all if the posts were audio or video. The advantage of typing the responses for me is that I can do it while watching a movie or having a conversation with hubby or both. I can type a response in one window while doing some kind of work in 3 or 4 or more other browser tabs. I cannot multitask well with audio, which is a linear form of communication, and necessarily less interactive. Yes, I know I type faster than most people, but anyone who is on here much surely picks up speak after a while, don't you think? Lol, if my fingers hurt after typing a lot, I never would have been able to put hubby through graduate school. I used to type 8-10 hours a day with lawyers yelling "hurry up" and answer the phone at the same time.

Man, your fingers must have really been inspired and motivated to put the hubby through graduate school. This advantage of the ability to multitask never even occurred to me even if that's what I've been doing all along. I always realize a thing or two from you, drannhh.

So the answer's no to audio/video posts then for you? We can both listen to each other talk like kids although I've heard you speak and I don't think you sound like a kid. Take care.
