Forums up in ‘beta’

Well we have been talking about getting the forums up and running for some time now. We finally decided that it is better to get it out there and let folks let us know what it needs.

How about a little music with your geography

National Geographic has launched National Geographic World Music, a new music store that lets users explore and purchase world music. The site includes content from the National Geographic Channel and a map interface for browsing through the offerings of music from different regions of the globe. So, if you want to know what they’re listening to in Tashkent or maybe hear a bit of Japanese Taiko drumming, check out the World Music site.
