Poor Wired. Its post on how to “cheat” the music industry could be one of the lamest I’ve ever seen. It’s essentially Digg bait, despite the fact that, at this point, everyone everywhere has already done such an article, including us. “But it’s up to you to fill in the blanks.” Sure, OK.
Listed sites/services include Lala.com, Last.fm, BOiNK (oh, you mean that cheap publicity stunt?), Blin.com and Albumbase. Try not to yawn.
For the record, I find myself going to BeatPort more often. That’s not to say that I haven’t joined What.cd (invites are shut off right now, otherwise I’d hand them out), but there’s something to be said for convenience.
