Internet Music by the People, for the People
In his new paper CommuniCast: Developing a Community-Programmed Webcasting Service, Todd Larson proposes the creation of a peer-produced internet music service that would offer listeners the opportunity to do more than simply listen. CommuniCast would be more like a networked community than simply a website because it would give members the chance to share music, rate songs, and determine playlists. By combining users' rankings of songs with their rankings of each other's reviews, like Slashdot or Epinions, CommuniCast would produce collaborative, non-hierarchical playlists that would share new music with the community and encourage interactions among members.
