Open source coolness

I got an e-mail from a friend today with a link to LibriVox, which offers downloadable recordings of public domain literature. Not only (audio)books, but also poetry, and even plays! Aaaaaaaand as if that weren't cool enough, you can volunteer to record stuff! That's the part I'm most excited about (in case you couldn't tell).

Then from that site I found Musopen, which is a similar site for recordings of public domain music, what people who don't know better collectively call "classical music". This site is cool, too, but it's more cool on potential; I don't think it's been around very long yet, so there doesn't seem to be much of a selection yet. Also, so far it seems to be entirely orchestral performances, even of opera stuff. So...that's weird. But cool!
