Hi Tom - well as RECENTLY appointed 'CURATOR' of all the audio there this is exactly the kind of thing we are trying to make easy to do.  So I am out there from Oct 20 -30 and Iíll see what we can do.   Your idea is good and it would be swell to host and my pleasure to try to make easy to do.  b

I offered to send them a hard drive full of vintage audio manuals, schematics, literature, etc. They basically said thanks but no thanks, apparently they don't have a good automated way to port stuff like that onto their online sites. I definitely don't have very much time for this, so I was thinking some sort of "broadcast channel" like a social media thing would be best. Ideally, I'd spend about 2 minutes in some sort of upload interface dragging and dropping a jpg or group of jpgs, and then the word would go out over the social media that there was an update. People who "follow" would then know there's something new to look at or download. This seems more modern than a static website.

Ideally, I'd like to just upload stuff and then tell a couple of lists about it and word can spread from there. I don't want to spend any time "curating" things like "friends" lists or requests and I don't want to chat or message with people viewing the "channel," it would just be a resource for those interested in such things to grab up a steady flow of information. Is there such a site or app? Perhaps a regular blog website is better?
