More on Music 2.0

Paul Lamere over at Sun picked up on my post yesterday on "music 2.0". I'm glad I'm not the only one that has trouble with that label, but he takes a good shot at getting more granular with it:

As a starting point he suggests:

Music 2.0 sites fall into a number of camps:

  • music services - places like iTunes and Rhapsody where you can purchase or subscribe to music
  • Music discovery - places that help you find music - these fall generally into 3 subcategories:
  • Social - wisdom of the crowds sites like, iLike. Goombah and Qloud
  • Content-based - recommendations based on the music content - Pandora, SoundFlavor, MusicIP
  • Expert based - Music recommendations from people - music blogs,
  • Music experience augmentation - sites to make your music listening experience more enjoyable - this includes playlisting sites like MusicMobs, fiql and Webjay - music dashboards like sleevenotez or Snapp Radio
  • Music meta data - add to the data surrounding the music - MusicBrainz, All Music Guide, Gracenote

He also is suggesting a wiki-approach to creating the "ultimate music 2.0 directory". If you are interested in contributing, check out his post and volunteer.
