If you look down the sidebar on the right, you see a small list of songs, just above the map. This is a link to my Last.fm account, which is telling you that the last ten songs I listended to via iTunes, as I sat down to write this were,

Bill Frisell – 1968
The John Scofield Band – I Brake For Monster Booty
Jonatha Brooke – I´ll Take It From Here
Bob Dylan ‚Äì The Levee’s Gonna Break
Camille – Assise
Greg Pagel – Flesh-eating 7th Chords
Tom Waits – Trampled Rose
John Pizzarelli – Aguas De Marco
Black Eyed Peas ‚Äì Don’t Phunk With My Heart
Bj??rk – Mouths Cradle

The cool thing about Last.fm is that it tracks your listening habits and lets you create custom “radio stations” based on your tastes. It is surprisingly good at picking music for my not-quite mainstream tastes. Moreover, like any good bit os social networking software it lets you check out what other like-eared folks are listening to and even build online communities based around shared interest.

I tried to get this stuff happening some time back, but the net connection in Delhi was so unreliable, it never really worked. Nice to be able to fire it up properly now.

You don’t have to use itunes to take advantage of last.fm.
