    Hi folks, here's my audiobiography, which in 90 seconds tells you who I am and what's important to me. This is an idea that has come out of the soundcloud heroes group; the plan is to upload a 90 second audio track that sums you up and it's your call how you do that, in music, words or whatever.

    I really like the thinking here. It took me a few months to realise there was a community on soundcloud and a few more before Ollie dragged me out of my cave to play sax on a track of his and got me involved! If lots of people have audiobiographies at the top of their pages, or prominently linked from the written bio at the side of the page, it will help us all to connect with each other and new arrivals more easily. For me, it's a no-brainer that a site dedicated to sound should have subscriber info in audio format.

    Anyway, please please please join in and let's see if we can spread this idea out across the cloud. I really think this can help build and strengthen the community. There are more practical details on this link, along with some examples

    So, basically

    90 seconds max,
    who you are, what's important to you,
    name it 'Audiobiography' with your name alongside,
    tag it 'audiobio' (very important so everyone can see them all in one place and the community team can scoop them up and feature them on the blog in the coming months)
    upload to your spotlight/prominently and add links elsewhere on your page

    Thanks a bunch!
