Get on the Ground Floor of my next Ricochet Adventure

I view this a starting point of a Ricochetti Market Place.

RicochetOutLoud.jpgThe ground floor of what, you ask. 

How about hosting a new Ricochet Member Podcast [Dragnet], the relaunch of the [Outloud] or promoting your business to the Ricochetti. 

The new proposed podcast is intended to be more subjec…

    Part 1

    As for the Dragnet podcast (fyi, I’m not married to this name, its just the one that made sense to me at the time. It can take the form of another name if needed).

    Well, it will work in any number of ways, in which the members need it to work.  If there is a member or a couple of members that are willing to be constant hosts (week after week)  it can take that form in which those host want to take the podcast. However, at first I envision a handful if interested members that want to participate. In that case, we’ll see if those members want to team up in Squads or take a podcast for the subject they are interested in.  That way each member can direct the subject matter as they desire/wish.  Some might want to have a recorded debate, others might want to use this forum to give a in-depth detail audio version of how they see things, others might have a subject matter in which they can speak to i.e. tax law, medical.

    Dragnet cont….

    others might have a subject matter in which they can speak to i.e. music, religion, movie, you name it.  The germ in which Dragnet  name grew out of, is the phase “The Facts Ma’am, Just the Facts”.  I’ve been asked (by a few members) to move the AMU podcast into a more serious subject direction. FYI, the whole point of the AMU was to allow members that couldn’t, wouldn’t or shouldn’t to participate in a Ricochet Meet Up. Most of the time the AMU gets deep into very serious subjects, and some time we don’t.  The AMU is an Coffee House or bar in which you swing in and chat with your buddies. The AMU is an Social Event, not a Meeting.  Meetings are where agendas are sometime required.

    The Dragnet podcast will allow the Ricochetti that want a single subject focused podcast to have and design one without needing to know anything technical or needing to figured out the mechanics of getting a recording to show up as an mp3 for download, I will do that part.

    As for the Outloud, this is a re-Liftoff of http://ricochet.com/member-feed/Liftoff-of-Ricochet-Outloud

    in which you can record you own post or someone else’s Follow this Step by step process.   It will create the raw file which I’ll play around a bit with before adding it to the feed.

    Here’s a step by step guide from last time, it may need a few changes.

    • Step 0 – Listen to DocJay at His Best on Ricochet OutLoud

    • Step 1 – Pick a Post & Comments to read OutLoud.
    • Step 2 – Dial-in Number: TBA
    • Step 3 – When prompted enter Access Code: TBA
    • Step 4 – Start recording, press * then9
    • Step 5 – When prompted, enter the PIN, which is 2012#
    • Step 6 – Use the Script (use link)
    • Step 7 – To stop and save the recording, press  * then 9   confirm by pressing the 1 key
    • Step 8 – You are done, hang up and thank you.
    • Step 9 – I’ll take it from here and add some production values to the recording and submit it to the RSS feed and in turn, iTunes as well.

    Better check with Jack Dunphy, he may have trademarked the name. Don’t want to go messin’ with no cops.

    Will this have its own tab at the top or will it be a sub-site on the member feed?

    Sure, I’d like to pitch in, if I may.

    Part 4

    Looking for entrepreneurial members that want an inexpensive medium in which to promote their business to the Ricochetti and anyone else with iTunes.  I feel this is step 1 in establishing a Ricochetti Market Place, which was an idea from Cool Hand that Rob loved from the End of Ricochet post

    Ferti-Sorb.com is a business owned by a fellow Ricochetti, which is currently sponsoring the AMU podcast and will be included in the relaunch of the Outloud podcast and might also be involved in Dragnet.  I have bigger plans as well, that I envision benefiting to the bottom line of Ricochet, but it will take the support of entrepreneurial  (nor donators) to start this Ricochetti Market Place.  So let me know if you are interested in sponsoring a Ricochet Member podcast.

    I wish I had more influence with the Ricochet Powers That Be, then I do.  …   So NO, it won’t have its own tab.  Hell I’m still working on the PTB, to include the AMU podcast on the sidebar of Main Feed or the podcast page or the  allfeed RSS feed.  I think our little podcast has shown it has legs, as well as support from the Ricochetti, But, as Rob as told me, they don’t know what to do with us. So until we become a much bigger force to be reckon with or have enough sponsors to pay them off, for listing the podcast, we’ll remain a sub-site/posting on the memeber feed.

    More, we want to know more. How’s this going to work?

    This seems like a cool idea.  I have been wanting to get more involved in Ricochet.  I can’t say i am a writer, but i have no shortage of opinions.   Let me know how i can help!
