Anybody else find it interesting how some of the advertisements in Spotify are songs from other bands that are trying to draw more listeners to their music on Spotify?

Seems like a serious revenue multiplier for Spotify... bands/record companies paying Spotify to advertise Spotify (well, to advertise a different song on Spotify).

Of course, I haven't a clue how much $$ Spotify makes per song listened, and I'm sure its a very convoluted formula given the contracts with the record companies. But if Spotify has somehow structured the deals such that it is always making money (on average) when a song is played regardless of volume, then they've got a really nice reenforcing revenue generating loop going on.

Hey Google Reader -- when you gonna change the Like button to a +1 button? Or am I the only one still using an RSS aggregator these days?

And I'm a little disappointed in not being able to find the PM of Google Reader on G+ so I can tell him/her to fix this directly. Amazing how spoiled we have gotten with the ability to give direct feedback on Google products through G+.

The guy in red slept through just about the entire sox game the other night. He told us later that he was dreaming of baseball-playing vampires.

Welcome to all my friends that just joined today. Have fun spending the afternoon filling out your circles... don't spend too much time on it though. You'll probably end up reorganizing after you figure out how they work ;-)
