Great idea, Doug!  I would definitely include both Bob Heil (we all know his background) as well as Marty Garcia at Future Sonics (the inventor of in-ear monitoring and a really brilliant problem-solver in pro audio).  They're two people who have some stories that all of us could benefit from.

Joe -

I will absolutely ask Bob to contribute.

I have not had time to do much of anything on the site.  Hopefully that will change down the road.  Mostly I wanted to get the thing started and hopefully generate some interest.

More later...

thanks

Bob Heil has agreed to give me access to his large collection of photos from 'back in the day'.

He's traveling right now, but when he returns I will get the photos and either put them on the web site, or link to his web site if he chooses to make them available there.

So far this thing is looking like a portal.  

I'm not sure exactly how to go about this.  I am open to any and all suggestions re: how to proceed.  I am wary of a Wiki because I feel it would be difficult to 'control', and could easily veer off into unintended directions.

I think everyone will be pleased with Bob's contributions.

FYI....

As someone who contributes quite a bit to Wikipedia I would really appreciate it if you could get Mr. Heil to release these photos to you under the Creative Commons Atrribution 3.0 or Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license so some could be reused on Wikipedia, especially by the Professional Sound Production editing group.

Photos like these are an important resource for learning about the history of sound production and it would be really nice to share them with as large an audience as possible.

Thanks for all your work on the site!

*edit: fix urls

Yet another update:

My Joomla install fell over somehow and can't be recovered.

The site is back up as a blog, with new content courtesy of David Scheirman.
