FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Norcross, GA – October 28, 2008
Erie Looking Productions is proud to announce that a compact disc is available for purchase through on-disk.com of LISTen's coverage of BlogWorldExpo 2008. The disc contains remastered recordings of the three episodes at very high quality in Ogg Vorbis format. The disc is intended for library collections and for archiving. Archival concerns drove the decision to use the Ogg Vorbis format as it is an open standard.
The on-disk.com page offering the disc is: http://on-disk.com/product_info.php/products_id/594. Rather than handle fulfilment from Las Vegas, it was felt best to use a separate vendor for making this available. This is intended to reduce overhead on the content creator's end.
