Last FM: Making Every Listener A DJ

With my broadband connection hopefully up and running in the next couple of days, I might start availing myself of this wonderful little service… Basically, it’s a net radio station based on the playlists of users. A program called Audioscrobbler (which compiles a list of songs you listen to and suggests songs of a similar style) sifts through these playlists and singles out those which contains songs you might like. These are then played to you through the site. It’s the ultimate democratization of the “airwaves”; a system that turns ever listener into a DJ. And, what’s more, its all completely free! (Although, I would recommend you make some sort of a donation.)
