This morning, Al Filreis tweeted this from the PennSound Twitter account:
As of today: 27,394 downloadable MP3s consuming about 275GB of disk space.

Simply amazing. To give you some sense of how this compares to other websites, most personal websites — including this one, dating back to 2003 — fit under 2GB. I work with several academic, digital archives, and none approach 275GB.
If you don’t already know PennSound, set aside some time to check it out.
