URLwire for Tuesday 3/4/03- Online news headline linking services are welcome to link to this story. Aims to be the Open Directory For Music Sites
Based around the Open Directory editing model, MusicMoz aims to be a comprehensive directory of music, built by volunteers around the world, with contributions from the web public. 
MusicMoz -  
MusicMoz only offers volunteer editing positions. There is no money involved, only the satisfaction and enjoyment of building a useful resource for the web public, and participating in an international community of editors. 
Search URLwire archives since 1994 
MusicMoz, aka The Open Music Project, was created because music information is one of the most searched topics online, and a very important application of the internet. Commercial and fan websites offer an abundance of information on thousands of bands, artists, orchestras, composers and just about every other aspect of music. One of the biggest drawbacks to this wealth of information is that it can be very disorganized and can often disappear as websites continually shut their doors. 

MusicMoz and many of its features were inspired by the Open Directory Project. MusicMoz also uses Open Directory Project data, which any site may do providing they display the correct attribution. MusicMoz is not affiliated with Netscape, although many of their volunteer editors also edit at the Open Directory Project. 

If you are interested in music and would like to maintain a category in the Open Music Project, It's simple to join.  First, find a category you would like to maintain. Choose "become an editor" at the top of the category page. Fill in the simple application form. Note that some categories do not have a "become an editor" link; you should find a more specific category which interests you, and apply there. Once you have joined, and gained some experience, you can apply for more general categories. Editors are free to spend as little or as much time on the project as they wish to, there are no minimum requirements. 

If you want to help, but don't have the time or inclination to become an editor, you can still help by submitting a website, review, or other information, which one of our editors will review for inclusion in the directory. Simply find the right category and choose the 'submit item' option at the top of the category page. 

MusicMoz only offers volunteer editing positions. There is no money involved, only the satisfaction and enjoyment of building a useful resource for the web public, and participating in an international community of editors.
