Yes, cool idea.
I already store source sounds made by students on my ftp site.
Folk from around the world have landed there and made use thereof as well.
On the one hand it is good to keep everything on the one server, but as has been
mentioned not only is this very costly but also proliferates data.
And we *still* need a really effective search engine for sound. I havenøt seen a
good mpeg7 searcher yet that enables me to upload my dog's howl and find all
manner of other sreaching animals in .wav format.
