Last.fm

I’ve spent the better part of my online weekend integrating a number of online services with one another. I’ve unintentionally saved the best for last (again, that’s not me trying to be witty).

Among the various web 2.0 service built-in integrations facebook now offers is last.fm. I’ve apparently signed up for this service in an earlier iteration of its design. And I was apparently unimpressed at the time – or more concerned with personal privacy – as the site offers online journaling of your musical listening history.

The site offers a number of features, including iPod integration, and matches you with others with similar tastes. It can then make recommendations to you – a la the iTunes Genius – to help you find musical you are likely to enjoy discovering. We are really starting to see the beginnings of mainstream adoption of the “digital butlers” Negroponte foretold.
