Last.fm founder on the CBS deal

by Josh Kimball

Co-founder of Last.fm Richard Jones blogs the usual stuff. (Aka more money, more opportunities, etc.)

On privacy:
“OH NOES UR SELLIN MY SCROBBLES!!1!! — Don’t panic. The openness of our platform and our approach to privacy won’t change.”

Despite the assurance, a lot of people seem worried, and it’ll be interesting to watch the unsubscribe phenomenon.

(In fact, the PERFECT Web 2.0 company might be one that unsubscribes users with a single click when their beloved social media organ is purchased by evil Big Media. Angel investors, please leave your e-mail addresses in the comments.)
