Are you getMicrophone()ing?

getmicrophone_logoThis is long, long overdue but the venerable Chuck Freedman has started a site called getMicrophone() for all things related to Flash and the microphone as an input device. This goes really nicely with Chuck’s work at Ribbit and I think it comes at a time when the Microphone is going to become more important to Flash developers. For one, it’s another area that the Flash Player leads Silverlight. Also, as Adobe pushes for more support for gaming as well as tools like Adobe Flash Collaboration Service, the microphone is as important as the mic and the keyboard. Not to mention other things that may be coming down the pipeline.

So if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth checking out. And make sure to bug Chuck to update it some more. Or even better, offer to contribute some tips and tricks!
