Does this make me hip?
Chris Foley has informed me that I'm now on MySpace, as part of it's new MySpace News. The 25 main topics for the news aggregator include Music, which is then divided into six subcategories: Classical, Country, Electronica, General, Hip-Hop, and Indie. The Classical page is mostly blog posts by familiar faces like Alex Ross, On an Overgrown Path, Jessica Duchen, aworks, Steve Hicken, the Met's own Anne-Carolyn Bird, Marc Geelhoed, the Well-Tempered Blog, Chris, and myself. There are a few news media items from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and the San Francisco Gate, surprisingly no feeds from the New York Times or other really big newspapers. I haven't noticed any visitors from this aggregator yet, and it certainly isn't as complete as New Music Reblog or Blognoggle New Music. There is one blog that isn't part of my blogroll, Richard Friedman's All I Know
2. He is a director of Other Minds, a non-profit in San Francisco that promotes new music.
