MOG: a different music community?
« on: June 12, 2007, 07:53:06 AM »
With last.fm being bought by CBS, I stumbled onto this:
http://mog.com/

The basic difference with last.fm is that you download an app, the mogg-o-matic, that scans your music collection. So mog does counts, recommendations, etc, but it has the advantage of _knowing_ what you already have.

This is actually very motivational :)
http://mog.com/story

Looks like a company started by 3 music lovers.

The only thing that troubles me is that the site looks ultra-professional, designed to appeal. I wonder if this is not some big name in the music industry hidden in the innocent appearance of a 'new cool music site that will free us all'...

App is indexing my collection. Will post more as I know more.
