Grooveshark Article

If you were interested in my quick take on Grooveshark (and other music sharing services) a few posts back, I'd like to direct you to Leslie's much more detailed review of Grooveshark which also discusses the monetary aspect of their approach, which involves the ability to buy music, but also to get paid in credit for sharing music. This will probably be great news for people with large online social networks, but not quite as great for people with large antisocial networks.

Here's my Grooveshark playlist called "Antisocial Network." It would be great if I could somehow embed it here.

I'm busy trying to get my current iTunes library re-rated after losing all my ratings in a hard drive mishap, so I'm heavily listenign to my library rather than checking out other people's playlists at the moment...
