What will 2.0 2.0 be?

Touring 2.0 – Interesting post and fascinating topic.


RE: The retarded, and snowballing 2.0.

You’re surely intimately familiar with Web 2.0.

Non-random ListeNerd readers also know Music 2.0 quite well. Kottke is billing his site as Liberal Arts 2.0. Here, a listing of Food 2.0 sites. Water 2.0

And apropos of this post’s title: What will snowclone 2.0 look like?

Also HAGGLING 2.0.

eMusic mashes up its tunes with internet radio broadcasters

eMusic (my hated frenemy) is hooking up its music library with 10 internet radio services. The offerings will sync streams of internet radio stations with the eMusic catalog, and let fans download as they listen.

Who gets a piece of the eMusic pie? KEXP, Pandora, WOXY, and Bootliquor, among others. Here’s the Pandora/eMusic mashup.

eMusic is also donating money to KEXP, SomaFM and others. [via]

UPDATE: Rusty from SomaFM clarifies the relationship in the comments. (eMusic’s thing was apparently a demo, not a real deal relationship. YOU SUCK, Mashable. OK, you don’t totally suck, but still.)
