Free Sheet Music at

One thing that won’t be around in 2030 are musical composers.

Already, computer generated music is opening new avenues for musical composition. Computer generated music is currently creating scores of scores being played by humans and by computer.

The advances are staggering. Sophisticated algorithms can create 50 pages of original music in one nano-second. With the help of a friend, I’ve created an algorithm I call, which uniquely combines Ionian, Mixolydian and Dorian chords and scales, using a random number generator to create octodcillions of pages every second.

The music created by the site ( can be saved to a computer or iPad, printed and edited, copyrighted, played…. Entrepreneurs will present millions of pages to the public at a minimal cost. Festivals of spontaneously written music will flood the stadiums. Bye-Bye Sheet Music Pie.

But the computer generated music algorithms are just the start.

As the May-June article, Pop goes the Algorithm, explored – algorithms are now being used, with success, to grade the music human musicians are creating across a wide spectrum of musical genres. Old scores (the ones created by humans) and new scores (the ones created by computer algorithms) can be stored in musical databases.

By 2030, Grandfather Pop algorithms will use the scoring algorithms on the stored creation algorithms – instantly letting record producers know which computer-generated compositions will be successful and instantly letting musicians know where to focus their ears.

Of course, why stop there? Artificial intelligence is also being used to scan and record musical instruments and human voices so they can be accurately simulated.

There’s a saying that in an infinite amount of time an infinite amount of monkeys typing on an infinite number of computers can turn out the complete works of Shakespeare. By 2030, ( using an infinite number of scoring algorithms interpreted by an infinite number of musical instrument simulations will create the complete works of Beethoven, the full repertoire of American Idol hits and the top ten works of heavy metal, rock, jazz and whatever composition your heart desires.

Sqeeqee Introduces Unique Social Networthing™ Opportunity for College Students provides an innovative online environment for college students interested in joining the social networthing™ evolution and realizing their true financial potential.

ORANGE COUNTY, CA, August 26, 2013 – For college students who are tired of limited funds, limited resources, and limited opportunities to enhance their financial net worth, (pronounced “Squeaky”) offers an easy way to branch out and realize the benefits of ongoing success with skills already possessed by these budding collegiate entrepreneurs. In a world where no location is too distant, new friends are made with online requests rather than old-fashioned handshakes, and cyberspace is the next best thing to home, this new opportunity appearing on the college scene offers the promise of financial freedom as well as a fatter wallet.

What if the time that college students spend online each day could earn them money? Think about the potential and the ease with which it could be done. Students are online anyway, socializing, gaming, bragging, posting photos, tagging, searching for bargains on stuff that it would be nice to have, and occasionally, doing homework. It’s true; the Internet is sometimes useful for completing assignments.

Does this potential to join an all-inclusive online environment that goes beyond the traditional methods of earning money while you are away at school sound intriguing? It should. After all, who doesn’t like to get paid for just sitting around, chilling with friends, and trolling through gaming sites looking to see who is currently playing?

There simply aren’t enough tutoring jobs to go around for everyone, and college students certainly won’t find enough work study positions either. It’s time to do what you’ve wanted to do for so long – take charge of your own life and prove to the world that you can be successful, not only in your grades, but in the realm of finance as well.

While the career development office does well at providing advice on how to get a leg up on your job hunt once your graduation date is in sight, college students need to take charge of the reins on how to access financial funds now. Social networthing™ gives them the opportunity to gain access to any number of opportunities from buying or selling textbooks, sports equipment, bikes, futons, and other unwanted dorm stuff at a reasonable price to gaining insight into crowdfunding opportunities for unique ideas they have on how to make money.

“Life is expensive, not just college. Finding a way to access funds without having to go to mom or dad can be a challenge, but with, it’s a pleasure. After all, college students are already spending hours each week online doing what it is that they enjoy, so why not make it possible for them to earn a few dollars at the same time,” says Jenny Ta, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sqeeqee. She explained further, stating “We want to assist college students in turning their social networking activities into profitable ventures that are simple and yet can increase their level of income.”

“Once students create their free online profile, they are ready to list items to sell. As their buddy list grows, we are prepared to assist them to grow their financial assets through our monetization of online advertising,” notes Ms. Ta. “Already adept at social networking, college students are in a unique position to maximize on the potential offered by a multi-billion dollar industry that other social networking sites capitalize on, leaving their users to discover other ways to profit.”

Now is the time for college students to take the initiative to move toward their goals, build relationships, establish long lasting connections, and reach their networthing™ goals. is free to join, provides weekly giveaways for new registered users, and provides access to financially rewarding experiences. Seven unique monetization features exist, including an eCommerce marketplace, 50% profile ad share, 30% referral ad share, 70% mobile download profit share, 30% mobile ad profit share, 30% media ad share, and 70% game development profit share.

A Skateboard with brakes on Kickstarter

The Brakeboard, a revolutionary skateboard braking system, has been launched on crowdfunding web site Kickstarter.

The inventor of a revolutionary skateboard braking system has launched a project for funding on crowdfunding web site Kickstarter.

Ben Newman, the product’s designer, has won several awards for business innovation and inventiveness with Brakeboard, a braking system for longboard skateboards. Located in the rear axle and operated by a pedal mounted on the surface of the deck, the brake allows ridersto undertake steep hills and control speed without having to slide or put hands or feet on the ground.

The brake can be retrofitted to any longboard deck and used with wheels of the riders’ choice. Popular with commuters and students negotiating their university campus, the brake adds a new dimension to longboarding. The brake also broadens the target market to include younger and older riders.

Although North America is the biggest market, early adopters from around the world have embraced the product with enthusiasm. Longboarders from Europe, South Africa, Asia, Oceania and Russia are riding Brakeboards.

Until now, funded by family and friends, Newman seeks support through the crowd-funding website, Kickstarter. Additional funding will enable further product development, including testing new braking materials for those who undertake high speed down-hill riding. Also included is an easily removable pedal for when the rider wishes to perform freestyle tricks.

Kickstarter has brought much-needed financial backing to many innovative products. There are a range of rewards for pledges made to Brakeboard LLC, from a simple recognition on the product’s website through to a custom designed “Funded on Kickstarter” drop-through deck fitted with the latest edition braking mechanism.

The Kickstarter project has commenced 19th August 2013 and runs for 30 days.

SpareFoot Analysis Reveals America’s 20 Fastest-Growing College Towns

AUSTIN, TX—Raleigh, North Carolina, home to North Carolina State University, is America’s Fastest-Growing College Town, according to a new data analysis from SpareFoot, the online marketplace for self-storage.

To rank America’s Fastest-Growing College Towns, SpareFoot compared the 2000 and 2010 populations of college towns. Raleigh topped the 20-town list, with population growth of 46 percent from 2000 to 2010.

SpareFoot selected only those towns with a main campus of a public four-year university and a residential population of at least 20,000. The analysis did not include cities like Atlanta because although they’re home to major universities, their economies are more diversified than those of traditional college towns.

“College towns are so appealing because they combine the charm and livability of a small city with the sophistication and amenities of a much larger metropolitan area,” population researcher Bert Sperling, founder of, told “Cities with colleges and universities are healthier financially, because the local school provides a stable economic base when recessions hit. In fact, enrollment often increases when the job market tightens.”
