With Beatguide, Listening Connects to Live Events: New Electronic Music Startup Event listings you can play: Beatguide’s guide to electronic music events combines event metadata with listening. If it’s music events, what your calendar really needs is a play button. A funny thing happened on the way to the online music world. Roughly a century after the music recording revolution, we’re all newly concerned with getting into venues with other human beings. The problem is – and there’s no nice way to say this – the tools out there just aren’t very good.

ASMALLWORLD Forgot Username / Password? Interested in Membership? » Autumn's Coming: Events to Banish post-Summer Blues by Editorial Staff Real time lunar astrology, lore and events. Astrology is the belief that the moon and other celestial bodies have an influence on the course of human affairs. We fully use astrology in our daily lives and see it as a great and much needed benefit when partnered with Wicca or Witchcraft. We are lunar witches, and as such strongly follow the course of our moon throughout the twelve signes(signs) of the zodiac. Our rituals generally follow the ways of Wicca, not other darker forms of Witchcraft although lunar astrology can be used by all paths quite universally. Due to the rareness of truly accurate astrology transits from other websites, we have created LunarWitch.com.
Why Zuckerberg Should "Share" the Facebook Kingdom Facebook is worth $75-$100 billion. If we broke that down by user, it would mean that each individual is worth $118.34. Or, if we're looking at it in terms of revenue from 2011 - $3.71 billion - each user is worth $4.39 in revenue per user per year.

Minilogs Lets You ‘Playlist The Web’ We’re on a quest for the best ways to collect music, which recently saw us examine Later.fm, an InstaPaper-style web app that makes music collection in these difficult times a little bit easier. Minilogs (free; web) was designed to solve the same problem of collecting music on the web, with a little more versatility. By clicking on a bookmarklet (as with Later.fm), using the Chrome extension, or entering a URL, the app lets you save songs and videos you’ve found on your web travels for future listening, so you don’t lose track of the stuff you like during your busy day. To keep your findings (which can also include non-music things) organized, you can save music in different lists, or minilogs. 7 ways to fuel fandom on Facebook Four years ago, official brand pages on Facebook were quite rare.

Apple and social networks under fire over iPhone privacy Apple and social networks are under fire for distributing several social media apps through Apple’s iTunes store that harvest iPhone contact information without users’ permission. iPhone apps from social networking sites – including Twitter, Facebook, FourSquare, Instagram, Foodspotting, Path and Yelp – are reported to access the iPhone address book. In a letter to Apple, two US congressmen have called on Apple to explain why it has not blocked the apps, which violate Apple’s user guidelines. The Apple guidelines say: "Apps that read or write data outside its designated container area will be rejected." They also say: "Apps cannot transmit data about a user without obtaining the user's prior permission."

Piki.fm Lets You Collect Music to Make Radio for Other People By now, you’ve probably heard of Piki.fm (free for the web and iOS), the latest venture from the creators of the breakthrough music app Turntable.fm, which powers internet radio streams based on your friends’ music.
