I'm toying with an idea for a project. I've just started playing with Audioboo - you can record up to 5 minutes of audio and upload to the site as a 'boo'. All well & good.

But then I found @sc_r's website in which he records 60 seconds of ambient noise or something specific - dot matrix printers and the like, and it gave me the idea to do an audio record of places around Leeds - coffee machines at Bottega, the hubub at the train station and so on.

Sounds like fun (sorry) - couple of others on Google+ liked the idea, Griff set up a collaborative map where we can post links to our Leeds Boos, and we're up and running.

Still at the formative stage at the moment. Anyone else want to join in?

You may like http://sounds.bl.uk/uksoundmap/fusionmap.aspx - most of those sounds were contributed via Audioboo, most of the Leeds ones by @sc_r.
