Another dasBlog Slashdot, this time Greg Hughes' CopsOnTop Charity...audioblogging in Kilimanjaro
Any moment now, the blog that Greg Hughes setup for CopsOnTop is going to get Slashdotted. I was chatting with Greg, and he was telling me how cool it is that the cops are climbing Kilimanjaro as a memorial to a fallen officer. They are blogging via Satellite Telephone to AudioBlog.com and the posts are being posted to their Climbing Blog (running dasBlog 1.6). I was just submitting the story to get him some traffic. I didn't think it'd be accepted within 4 minutes of posting it! Greg didn't have time to upgrade to dasBlog 1.7 (RC this week) so we'll see what happens.
GlucoPilot writes "Apparently a charity called Cops On Top" is climbing Kilimanjaro as a memorial to the late Officer Isaac Espinoza of the SFPD. That in itself is pretty amazing, but the ./ amazing thing is that they are AudioBlogging the whole thing via Satellite Phone by calling to an audioblogging site and having their MP3s automatically posted to their dasBlog (open source blogging system) at http://www.copsontop.com/climblog. Cool stuff. Their latest blog post is at 15,500 ft."
