Our band has just finished its latest CD and instead of pressing it on a CD we released it on a flash drive direct We were really stoked with the results and wondered if anyone else had anything to say about this. It seems we cannot find enough fans at the gigs to buy a CD but were willing to shell out $15 bucks for a 1 GB...has anyone else found this to work for them? I read this Billboard.com release http://billboardpublicitywire.com/releases/flash/... and it convinced me if the labels are dropping the CD perhaps this was the next thing...? anyways........drop me a line....

Make it go pro. Get ads and sponsors. Pro site, better site, make a living out of it. It is a great resource for all the visitors. Sharing efforts for free makes you a slave of your success. Share your knowledge and time in a way that it makes sense.

James Grahame, I'm clear on the differences between the sites. I pointed out BB as an example of a blog site which has recently had some user issues with introducing certain types of ads, not as a direct comparison. I like this site a lot, have read it for a long time and would support advertisers here with my hard earned Yen.

Peter, your site is top notch. I'd be lost without CDM. I put a post up on Matrixsynth on your Flash post and added a big blurb on your fund raiser. Not to diss my site, but CDM is a professional publication that would be sorely missed. I just post what I come across on a daily basis. Best of luck. cheers, matrix

@Downpressor: Boing Boing is represented by Federated Media and pulls in a seven figure income as one of the largest blogs on the web. On the other hand, CDM writes in-depth posts about a niche topic. Honda isn't likely to drop tens of thousands of dollars for a vapid "driving force behind your music" ad campaign on a music technology blog. They're clever enough to know that electromusicians are more likely to spend their hard-earned money on a roomful of noisy digital gadgets than a shiny new car. And, unlike Boing Boing, Peter can't get away with writing two line posts that link to amusing videos or weird happenings around the web. CDM contributors actually have to take the time to generate meaningful content in the hope that others will link to it. Considering the breadth and depth of content (and the distinct lack of in-your-face ads), the CDM gang has done a fantastic job over the past three years and they're improving with time. This site is certainly worth donating to - if you can't afford a few bucks, there are also countless opportunities to write for CDM (as I've done from time to time) or to spread the word (which I do every chance I get).

Peter - did you get my e-mail from the contact form? Instead of a confirmation message I got bounced back to the home page.

When you put adverts up, make sure they are of the most annoying, winking, blinking, shapeshifting strobing abominations you can find. Because every time I sit down to read a book, I like to set up my easy chair right next to my strobe light cuz we all know how much better this is for your eyes and concentration. Seriously, please stick to flat, still ads. The presence of strobing adverts in one's eyespace has driven me away from more sites than I can count.
