That is all.

Tune/tech links

JamJunky = a social media site for collaborating among songwriters
LaLa = A business model in which they’ll offer free streaming music online, and seek to generate revenue not only through revenue, but also by selling CDs to targeted audiences. Good luck with that.

The ListeNerd

Hi. Most first blog entries are awful: they say too much, they say too little, they do or do not ironically or inironically include a picture of the author’s cat. This first post will also suck, but it will be short. And also comforting in its predictability.

I am the ListeNerd. My aim in this blog is to track, discuss, explain and take pleasure in the intersection of technology and music.

My day job is as a media, entertainment and technology editor for a consumer trend company.

Now here we go: on to better things.
