1. Post links to your audio idea files UNDER THE LINKS SECTION – traffic noise, guitar riffs, rants, appliance recordings, birdsongs, unfinished compositions, old orphaned unfinished projects from your hard drive… If you don’t have anyplace to store files online you can link to, just do a search on “online file storage.” It’s pretty simple to upload sound files to share. *
2. Visit frequently to see what others have posted – take what you want from what you find. You can record or download files that are unmodified by other members, or you can add something additional to a modified project.

iPod shuffle: Small is the new big March 12, 2009
Let everyone else have their full-size iPods and iPhones. I, for one, love the iPod shuffle, for its size, simplicity and price. And now it’s gotten even better with the newest version: 1000 songs and 4GB. Really, do you need any more than that? And it’s so small (no bigger than a key) that you know for sure the subway mugger will snag the big old iPod flaunted by the label-snob consumer next to you long before discovering or caring that this tiny box of happiness and loud-convo muffler is clipped to your lapel. Now with free engraving and voice-over capability. I can never find prices on the Apple site, but I paid $50 for mine. Get small here.
