Subject: RE: From Max: Mudcat Update
I like Mudcat not having a bunch of frilly gadgets.
Gadgety sites are slow-loaders on my (dial-up) connection.
An audio archive would be great..especially if it was open to copies of old recordings. Vicarious participation in catter gatherings would be fun--but if we could pull the dusty old tapes of grandpa singing songs he learned from his grandfather, it could turn into a fascinating Field Collection type knock-off.
If there's any consideration of adding video, I think Tutorials would be an excellent resource.
With initial submissions limited to your First Generation Members, it wouldn't be hard to set standards and guidelines to sort of guide the archive/tutorials in an appropriate direction.
Thank you, Max.
This is a lovely (and useful!) creation.
