Interesting Stuff: Save Our Sounds
Save Our Sounds is an exciting new project launched by BBC World Service which aims to gather and share unique sounds from around the world.
For all the latest news, you can follow Microblogger-In-Residence Kate Arkless Gray on Twitter here.
Kate explains more about the project in this post on the Radio Labs blog.
World Have Your Say has been getting in on the act too; asking which sounds are likely to soon be extinct. The whirrs of a 56k modem? The excruciating noise of a dot matrix printer? Can't say I'd miss them, to be honest.-- but then hearing the noises we associate with our first days on the internet already brings a tinge of nostalgia.
All the sounds will be plotted on this interactive map.
Kate will be appearing on Digital Planet tomorrow evening to talk about Save Our Sounds.
