Last.fm

My profile on last.fm
I was recently re-introduced to Last.fm, the "social music revolution". It is a website which collects your music listening habits and collates them in to tables. The information is then used to compare you with other users and you can find cyber-friends who appreciate the same music. It automatically takes the songs you listen to on your iPod/iTunes and publishes the details online.

It weaves together music listening proclivities with live music events, personalise recommendations, internet radio and, of course, targeted advertising. It's a highly addictive mix, and unlike other social-networking sites, it works well and with some panache.

See my profile to get the gist.

You'd have to write them a letter every time you put on a gramophone record.
