How to contribute to Harkive using YouTube

On 9th July 2013 Harkive will be collecting stories from music fans around the world. The aim is to capture for posterity a global snapshot of the way in which we interact with the sounds and technology of today, and get to the essence of what music means to us as all.

Between now and 9th July Harkive will be posting a number of example contributions. These are intended to demonstrate the ease with which you can contribute your own story using the various online methods available, and also to help point you in the right direction.

Today’s example comes from Harkive’s Craig Hamilton. He recorded a number of short videos on Sunday 9th June with a Flip camera to keep a record of his listening day.
