I went out to visit Esben for some pizza, a single beer, a tour of his room (and entire dorm) – and just a slow evening of being still hung over from the night before.
Among other things Esben showed me this new fancy website/program/social site, called last.fm. It monitors the music you listen to, and then (among many other things) suggests, based on what others that have listened to the same music also listens to, music that you might find interesting.
The idea is quite similar to iRATE radio, only last.fm can work with more or less any music player, where as iRATE is it’s own player, and only plays what you fetch through their server.
Anyway, I looked closer at possible programs etc. today, only to find out that my (current) favorite player, Amarok, has full last.fm support. So no hassle with installing extra programs etc. All I need to do is sign up for an account, and take it from there. Just the kind of program I need… sweet.
