In the spirit of the musical exchange, you pick 3-5 artists that you feel others should know. You upload a CD length (80 minutes) playlist representing those artists. You listen to each playlist and see what you like. Hopefully you discover a new artist or rekindle a love of an old one.

I have a couple people interested in this already so we should go with this.
This is a much better idea than sending cds through the mail.

But it's similar in that the spirit of Desert Island is to introduce people to new music, right?

No!!!

At least, not for the ICDE (Interference CD Exchange). What u2popmofo is describing is a CD exchange. Hence, you send out CDs (those tangible shiny discs). That is a good idea. It takes some effort, but that is part of the charm. Just uploading some songs for anyone is too impersonal for me.

I'm open to any ideas, as I think there are a number of different things that could be quite a bit of fun. Let me know your thoughts.
I'm interested.
And I'd prefer it to be of mix CDs, not of full, regular, commercially available albums. Apart from the blatant piracy issue, it's also not a personal mix then.

What might be fun, is if there was a common theme to the ICDE. Or if the participants themselves would indicate what kind of mix they want to receive.

Although I'm still not sure I'm in, this is how I feel as well.

Frankly, sending out CDs is a ridiculous idea.

Let's look at the two options here.

1. Sending out CDs: you buy CDs, burn the mix, and then pay for postage. Only one person can receive the mix, or if others want to hear it, you have to pay for more blanks and postage.

2. Uploading stuff: you put together the mix and upload it. Anybody who's interested gets to hear it. No cost to either party. If anybody would like it in CD format, they can burn it for themselves and get exactly what they would have got under option #1.

I'm in for #2 but no way would I consider #1. Postage costs money I'm trying not to spend, and honestly, if I'm putting effort into a mix, I'd like the music to go to as many interested people as possible.

oh yeah, this is going well so far...

Why don't you guys have both options, for those who wish to send/receive CD's in the mail, make that request and for those who would rather just upload/download the files do that...

While I find the idea of downloading the files convenient, there is something nostalgic about being able to get a tangible CD that someone took the extra effort to create and send to me... Maybe you have to be old enough to remember CDs to get it...

I can just see it now... "I really liked your CD however it could have used better flow and the transitions between tracks weren't very smooth..."

A ridiculous idea?? Wow.

I never participated in any of the CD exchanges in the past but I remember them being quite successful.

The entire purpose of a "CD Exchange" is to "exchange CDs". If actually buying a blank cd and then sending it in the mail is out of your budget or doesn't mesh with your personal lifestyle, you don't need to be involved.

Actually, when I originally stated "sharing albums we like", I actually meant buying and giving that person the actual album. But as it seems that some people here think spending money on just a stamp is too expensive, this likely won't happen.
