Have Your "Voice" Heard

Ok, I'm trying a brand new experiment here at the 'Blog. I'm a guy that likes to keep on the leading edge. So when people talk about capturing the "voice" of their audience, I've decided to take it literally.

Through the web 2.0 world, I am now a user of a new invitation-only (ohh, ahhh) service by Google called Grandcentral. Google bought this small company recently, and it's basically a phone routing serivce that adds a ton of interesting features / capabilities to your various home / cell / work numbers (for free.... for now). At this point, I'm not using it for any of that stuff. The part that matters to you is that YOU now have the ability to leave me a "voice mail" and I have the ability to post that voice mail for everyone to hear if I think it's interesting enough (and clean enough).

So here's the deal.
1. Pick a topic of interest to you regarding Georgia Tech Sports - and develop your Jim Rome style "take"...... ie......... have........ a ......... take.
2. Click on the "Call Me" button in the right column. If this thing works like it says, the button will flip over, you'll be asked to put in your name and number. The service will actually call your phone, where you will be prompted to leave your message.
3. Leave your fantastic take
4. When I have time I will review the messages, I'll post the most interesting ones.

Just a couple of reminders - no profanity and no bashing of student-athletes. I have no clue how this is going to work and that's the magic on the 'net. Try something and if it don't work, get rid of it and try something else.

Let their voices be heard!!!!
