lastfm.com and "Scrobbling"
lastfm.com is a fascinating new social music network. Open an account, type in an artist you like and it will create a "station" that will stream similar music to your desktop. Really cool is that it creates a "tag cloud" of similar artists from which you can easily target your favorites or discover artists you would never have found otherwise. You can connect with friends and share playlists and find total strangers with similar tastes. There is also an "iScrobble" plug in that will track the music you play on your iPod and tag that in lastfm. Really cool stuff!
