New (beta) music service

I'm really not sure how this new venture is going to avoid the wrath of the RIAA and become the latest "Napster" casualty. But in the meantime, SeeqPod Music is way cool. They are spidering blogs to find published links to mp3 files and organizing a massive index to them. That, complete with a player and playlists make it a pretty useful tool.

They still have some pretty serious bugs, at least ones that appear in my Firefox browser. For example, when dragging items around in the playlist they drop into the wrong place. But for finding that old, hard to find song that you really just want to hear once and are not about to drop 99cents on iTunes to hear, this is the way to go.

Of course, the RIAA may just use it also as a massive index for their next wave of public lawsuits...
