This sounds great in theory. In the past, I've found that there will always be a small percentage of people who sign up with good intentions but don't follow through (for a variety of reasons). When that happens, the GloNo mix exchange fairy usually bails out the slackers or enlists the help of others to do the same.
One major advantage of coordinating the exchange (aside from the rush of power) is being able to choose the person who will create a mix for you.
Anyway, I'm in.
WELL, I will coordinate it, and in order to make it easier on myself and also to earn myself nine new mix CDs, I'm leaning toward this approach:
Once we have 10 people, I'll close it off and those ten people can send their address to me - AND get to work on their mix. Once I have the list of ten addresses, and later everyone's confirmation that they're done, I'll send out the list of 10 addresses to everyone, and each person will send out a copy to everyone else.
Imagine - 9 mix CDs coming in the mail from 9 different people. I'm very excited about that.
As I mentioned before, the approximate cost to each person involved (including blank CDs, sleeves, and S+H) shouldn't be too much ($10-$15). It depends largely on where we all live.
Here are the 8 people I have so far. Please let me know if I have something wrong.
So two more people and this mix exchange will be all ready to go... Then the fun begins.
