Camp Posted August 16, 2004 Report Share Posted August 16, 2004 I was just recently exposed to a cool idea for finding new music: http://www.last.fm and http://www.audioscrobbler.com It's a site that tracks what music you listen to and finds similarities between your tastes and the tastes of others. It makes recommendations based on those similarities and allows you to explore and find artists you might never have known about on your own. Start by setting up an account at audioscrobbler and then you can stream audio using last.fm. Take a look at my account to get an idea of how it works. Best of all the site is not commercialized in any way. It was started by a music fan and appears to have every intention to stay that way. If you're interested sign up for an account. You'll need to install a plug-in for whatever media player you use (iTunes, QCD, WinAmp, Media Center, foobar2k, SqueezeBox, etc.). All the plug-in does is send every track name/artist name to your account. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
