San Francisco, CA The Game Audio Network Guild today launched its new global social network at www.audiogang.org. The web presence includes new and emerging technologies that facilitate online interaction geared towards interactive audio professionals, including audio portfolios, personal blogs, live chat, content sharing, forums, rss feeds, and dynamic calendars. G.A.N.G. tapped 5 Rockets, Inc, a leading social media and design consultancy, to help originate and develop this ambitious project.

"Having worked with Steve and 5 Rockets on a number of previous projects, we knew that we had to collaborate to bring G.A.N.G. to the next level" says Paul Lipson, President of the Game Audio Network Guild and VP of Business Development at Pyramind, Inc. "Our Guild is a global organization, with members in almost thirty countries. It was time to bring our online community to the next level and integrate next generation web technologies to support our membership and sponsorship base."

The new G.A.N.G. website offers members unprecedented access to networking and professional development tools, while simultaneously providing Sponsors with direct online communication and channel marketing frameworks. The result is a tightly knit community for both professionals and inspired young talent.
