- SoundCloud founder/CEO Alexander Ljung, 28, says he wants his company, which launched in 2007, to do for music files and musicians what Flickr did for photos and photographers. Given the service’s rising popularity, that’s an apt comparison. “The growth has been phenomenal,” he says. “We’ve gone from unknown to one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing audio platforms in 18 months.

- Got a question? Shoot! :)
- Our web developers now have a blog called SoundCloud Backstage. Learn what it’s like under the hood here at the ‘Cloud!
