Find, share & send quotes of authors saying interesting things at @edbookfest: authorquot.es
One of 23 projects from the Culture Hack Scotland 2013 showcase: welcometosync.com/showcase
Data used: Edinburgh International Book Festival: welcometosync.com/hack/data/edinburgh-international-book-festival
Made by: Andrew Coulton
Using the audio archive from the Edinburgh International Book Festival, authorquot.es allows users to take snippets from author talks and share it with friends and family. Andrew Coulton began by creating a bespoke user-friendly in-browser audio snipper. He then used Twilio to create a tool that allowed people to share quotes not only online, but also using the telephone – making the service as accessible as possible.
