Fourth Speaker – though it’s been up and running longer than the ListeNerd – is a new-to-me blog that covers the convergence of music and cell phones. (Great timing, considering the much-anticipated roll out of a certain holy and unnameable product!)
One of the bloggers appears to be Steve Safran, a stalwart from one of my favorite video platform-hopping blogs, Lost Remote. What’s interesting: while Lost Remote felt very much like an organic community built up around ideas about the future of television (and please note that I’m NOT that versed in the site’s origins), the feel of Fourth Speaker seems a lot more linked to the “CelleCast Team,” of which Safran is a member. Nothing wrong with being both a corporate citizen and a blogger, but the differences in one user’s perceptions of two websites that address similar subject matter seems notable.
