The AADL is adding CD previews to its online catalog — you’ll be able to listen to short snippets (a la Amazon/iTunes) before requesting the item. Still no digital deliveries, though.

Detroit: Murph posted a link to the Great Lakes Urban Exchange’s I Will Stay If… project in the Young Urban Professionals thread.

The Workantile Exchange, a “community of independent workers” on Main Street is accepting applications.

    I’m also impressed that it still works for me after noticing the racial makeup of the Detroiters shown. I don’t mean to criticize, since I’ve done exactly nothing to help Detroit, but perhaps there’s another level of meaning worth thinking about in those images…
