Just when you finally had blogs and vlogs figured out, a new communications medium could be poised to sweep the nation: phlogs! This brand new invention — short for phone blog — is debuting to the world on this very site. MNspeak’s new premiere sponsor, Popular Front, came to us with an idea for a new form of participatory communication, and we’re trying it out for the first time today. On the right side of this page, you’ll see something called “Pop Machine” that has a question and a phone number. If you call the number and leave an answer to the question, it will quickly become playable back on this site. Try it out!
