29 Days
"February is just around the corner (already?!), which means it's time for another RPM Challenge. While National Novel Writing Month asks participants to complete a novel each November, this challenge dares musicians to record an album during the month of February. Last year, more than 850 albums were recorded and posted online.

Head to the official site to sign up and hear 8,500 songs that were submitted during last year's event. The site also includes participant blogs, photos and more, and you can go here to watch a video introduction. If you join the festivities, let us know so we can hear your tunes!" Via Pop Candy.

I might just have a go at this.

Are you on Facebook?

You need to read this article. And then delete your account (or at least your account info).

With friends like these ... Facebook has 59 million users - and 2 million new ones join each week. But you won't catch Tom Hodgkinson volunteering his personal information - not now that he knows the politics of the people behind the social networking site. (From the Guardian, was in the weekend papers too, with a different headline - "Why Facebook is evil". Turns out its run by a neo-con nutjob.)
