Free-Loops.com provides a massive library of sound effects and loops. (over 8 thousand), that can easily be downloaded using their online interface. They also offer  a donate and download feature, but there is no real reason to do this unless you just feel compelled.

There is a download button

that is located on each sounds page. The audio auto loads when you load that particular sounds unique page, but we prefer to browse by the drop down menu function.
A few popular pages: Free Loops (main page), Drum Loops, Sound Effects

SoundBible.com

SoundBible.com Sounds

SoundBible.com Sounds

SoundBible.com is a gem of a site that has thousands of sound effects, and a very intuitive user interface. The Audio quality from this site is very professional, and it seems quality control is a must for them.

They have a very nice looking site, and they even take request. The site seems to load fast, and clean.

What makes this site special is its attention to detail and the quality of the sound effects. These are sounds that would normally cost you thousands of dollars to license and use, but here they are free under the license of public domain, or creative commons.

Wiki Topic User Powered News & Local Discussions

wikitopic.org

wikitopic.org

WikiTopic.org is a new kind of wiki that server up user powered news and local discussions. The site has a nice clean looking interface, and the technology it offers is similar to CragisList in that you can post information openly, embed images, and links. The site is currently only for United States users (or at least it seems to be, we may be wrong).

I am interested to see how this site works out, it could be a big hit for the online community. I can see several applications of this site in use.

  1. A way for persons in a specific region to discuss things online is a frely open forum discussion
  2. A way for people to spread news of local and regional events
  3. Spammers Paradise in that it could easily be filled with spam garbage if content is not properly moderated.

All in all we are hoping it does well, and succeeds. It could be a nice resource for the citizens of the United States, and maybe even expand to other areas of the world.
