Last Friday we were listening to the Daily Source Code over a glass or two of wine, and having a nice relaxed evening in. Adam Curry's Metrosexual moment jingle was replaced by Adam Curry's Metrosexual ringtone jingle! So, as DSC fans, we thought we'd make it into a ringtone proper - i.e. in a format that works on phones. It's here, any phone, any network, any country (although it may not work for some US networks)... We used our C21tones.com website to host the tone and make it available as a free over the air download to anyone. Now is this OK? Is this a nice thing to do? Are we allowed? Well, I'm not sure. Geoff Smith got in touch and now we know he's the author it is properly credited to him. C21 tones is a creative space and designed to let anyone upload and distribute (their own) content. It's alternative mobile contnet and the tones on there are free to download via WAP push. Now we're not trying to steal Geoff's content; far from it; and I'm embarking on a really interesting conversation with Geoff about mobilising audio in general. Since all of this, Adam has slated ringtone vendors on the DSC. Well, I hope he doesn't mean us, I think I'll drop him an audio comment about all of this as we are great fans of the 'Charlie' and I think it would be cool to see of the ethos of podsafe music for mobile. Imagine a system that let artists create and sell ringtones (and take a reasonable share of the profits). So there are all sorts of issues like mobile payment involved (and C21 is free so there's no way for artists to use it to charge for content as yet) but my belief is that 'mobile' should be more open, - to consumers, listeners and content owners. Anyway, I have verged so far off topic from personal grooming and hair removal products. I have also updated this post as I wanted to be clear that we made the tone for fun not for profit.
