Just a brief note to announce a discovery: Blip.
It's like a blend of Twitter and Last.fm
While Twitter asks "What are you doing?", Blip asks "What are you listening to?" You can type in an artist, and you get a selection of songs. Click on a song, add a comment, then blip it.
So far, after just about an hour of experimenting with this new social network site, I find it to be one of the most usable and sophisticated tools I've ever encountered. I was able to quickly start a page for my own music, The Str8 Sounds, and upload mp3s.
All functionalities are quick, easy, and intuitive. A wonderful interface. It's fun to listen to the songs, by my own Str8 Sounds and other bands, that I have blipped.
Check out Pluperfecter on Blip, with Str8 Sounds mp3s. I've also blipped songs by some other artists I like.
