Links for 1.23.09: The Obameter, Kerouac quotes, Yo-Yo Ma fakes…
by Josh Kimball
*Video: Pitchfork.tv has Kraftwerk Minimum-Maximum video up for the next week. Seems like they’re offering media in what’s sort of a flip-side of Daytrotter. Instead of true exclusivity of content they’re using short windows of availability to create scarcity and pull traffic.
*Performance: Remember when the listenerd was freaking the eff out about Yo-Yo Ma using some 3080 carbon-fiber cello at the inauguration? But then he showed up at the thing using a regular wooden one? Turns out, he was faking it anyway.
*Mobile/Social: Last.fm puts out on application for Google’s Android mobile phone platform.
*Phonographs: Current.com tackles vinyl. Good opener, but then too many human faces and not enough records spinning. [d-prince]
