'Lala' CD Exchange: Trade your Gathering dust Music for some you really Want

As time goes by, there is always music that we have that just sits on our shelves or in boxes gathering dust. Bill Nguyen and his team seem to have come up with a winning idea in LALA. The process goes like this: pick CDs you want, list CDs you have and want to trade, trade CDs with other members of LALA. Once you sign up, after your first CD is ready to be shipped, you will receive shipping enveloppes similar to those used by DVD by mail services. The service is now being tested (available to early adopters) and will be fully available on July 4th. I personally use Rhapsody for Online Music but some music that I am interested in is not available on it. For that type of CDs, I will give LALA a try.

After reading Jeff Howe's piece on The Rise of Crowdsourcing in Wired magazine, I thought calling on all the vegetarians to...
