Looking for volunteers for a new sound project!

If you're staying in Medway over Easter break, I am looking for 10-12 contributors to help test out a new social platform that is trying to make sound social.

CfJ's soundboard will be a collection of ideas and thoughts on the news of the day with students, lecturers etc. SkyNews is already using this new platform very effectively and we have been invited to be one of the first publishers!
