So I have been joining a heap of social networking sites lately (I don’t know why I bother, no one ever visits me).  One of these sites was It has probably been around for ages but I just discovered it. It listens (scrobbles) the music you play on your computer and then matches you with other people who have the same musical tastes. Great idea, because unlike other web-radio-station-things, it doesn’t mean you have to be streaming songs off the internet for it to recognize them. The interesting thing is that on many social networking sites you gain ‘credibility’ or coolness or whatever on how many friends you have or how many posts or comments you make.

However is different. You get ‘credibility’ by listening to more music. Which is super great!

I’m weird!

I also joined twitter and 30boxes a while ago but the 30boxes sites has been down because of traffic and the Twitter IM thing is never online to IM so that is helpful. Anyway I discovered Jaiku > Basically the same as Twitter except different.

This is a really crap post but I have to keep my public entertained! I only have three assignments to go before the end of semester, so hang in there! Please forgive me.
