Another interesting piece on GPS and wireless mobile.  Broadcastr, a Brooklyn-based start-up group that launched earlier this week, collects audio clips related to certain locations, and offers those traveling the streets a chance to listen on different stories, ranging from the historically important to the funnily charming.

Thousands of oral histories and stories from New York City are available on Broadcastr.  They have collected stories from about 30 organizations that have audio archives, including Unicef and the National September 11th Memorial and Museum.  While these stories exist on the network, anyone can share his or her own.
