Persistent subscribers will have noticed me talking up a service called HuffDuffer.com. For those unaware, and before you get all concerned that it’s a site for kitten harmers don’t worry no kittens are harmed by huff-duffing. See the verb “to huff-duff” derives from the technique called H.igh F.requency D.irection F.inding. typically “known by its acronym HF/DF, pronounced Huff-Duff. This has become the common name for this type of radio direction finder, and was coined during World War II.”
Here’s the way Jeremy Keith, the guy behind HuffDuffer.com, describes his site:
When you are huffduffing an audio file, you can “tag” it with key words or phrases. Separate tags with spaces or commas; whichever you prefer. Tagging files like this makes it easier to find related files that other people have huffduffed.
A separate podcast is created for every tag you use.
Tags are also a useful way of finding interesting stuff that other people have huffduffed.
Jeremy has built some features into HuffDuffer to give it the potential as a new social networking site – but you needn’t be a social networker to use the service.
