I received an invitation to try out a beta version of uPlayMe. This application would scan my iTunes to see what music I had recently played, and then connect me with other users of uPlayMe who listen to the same kind of music. As I get plenty of interactions on my favorite music with my students, I feel no need for this kind of service. But even so, is it so hard for people to find others with similar tastes through school, work, and various internet sources (bulletin boards, chat rooms, etc.) that they need a program to search for them? Chime in with your thoughts, including any experiences you have had in finding kindred musical spirits.
