last.fm

A couple of days ago a question about last.fm rolled across the Association of Internet Researchers listserv. I had never heard of the site so I quickly checked it out. Well I'm not much of friend of a friend (FOAF) sites, I belong to many of them and try to keep up with what they are doing, on a purely meta level, but have never really grown fond of the technology. Guess I'm a romantic at heart, like that is news, I spend so much time in my research venues that I simply have to love them or I don't want to work there every day.

But last.fm is different. Instead of the quasi human ranking that goes with many of the FOAF sites, this one is about music. I quickly downloaded the plug-ins and have been logging my music to their website. This is fun. Plus I can scan other lists and groups for new music, some with downloads most without. Personally without download is fine with me. Gets us away from all those nasty copyright and ethical issues.

You can check out the prolurker music list and find that I've been listing to celtic music while I write so what you will learn about me is that I listened to The Chieftains most over the last couple of days. This happens because The Chieftains have more albums than anyone else. The Chieftains experiment a lot which I like. LOL Take a look at their web url and you can guess how long their site has been online. The list is also linked from the right sidebar under Music I may be listening to.
