Chinswing is an audio chat room, kind of like a Chatango Public Group, but only it’s audio. Keep in mind it’s not real-time, you record a message, add a note…then press send.
You can bookmark conversations to join in later or add them to your watchlist or grab the podcast feed, that’s right since it’s audio each new message in a discussion becomes a new podcast item.
If you are after a click and talk check out Yackpack or any VOIP tool.
Check out the Enterprise Bloggers discussion on the Internet Channel…you don’t have to register to listen.
Each person has a profile page, see example.
Audio presence blogging is making an impact of late, not too much different that audio discussion forums:
Twittergrams, MySay, Yodio, Evoca, Pheeder…
I wonder when Chinswing will equip bloggers with widgets for their own blog discussion room, like the many text chat rooms
eg. meebo rooms (allows you to use your IM client), Planet Minibox, Chatango, Pladeo, Cbox, Tag-Board, Zonkboard, Nat1on, Zpeech, Gabbly, Yaplet…even Geesee and Creamaid to a lesser degree.

See my post, the various ways visitors can communicate with blog owners for some services I may not have mentioned.
At the moment the channel discussions are like community audio forums, I wonder if Chinswing will go beyond channel discussions, to personal posting like the presence blogging services (also limiting to contacts in the case of Pownce), and go the whole social network way by adding friends, and wall/private messages.
