February 21 Podbop


February 21

Podbop presented at some seminar, somewhere February 2006. I have to check out their home page to see what it's all about. "Podbop provides a simple, revolutionary way to discover concerts by matching legitimate MP3s with upcoming shows." Informs the home page. The front page has a map showing "Recently viewed Cities."

It is completely community driven, meaning anyone can list events, add MP3s, or edit existing content for free. Wikipedia style. The Old Way: Look up concerts in your town, google 100 different bands, try to track down an MP3 to see if you like them, and then decide if you want to go.

The Podbop Way: Type in a city, get events and MP3s, discover new music, and go see a show. Podbop was launched in February 2006 by Taylor McKnight and Daniel Westermann-Clark. Days later it won Best Mashup Award at Mashup Camp.
