Just a quick note I’ve been meaning to post regarding the imeem situation from a while ago.
Sean from imeem was intensely helpful in getting my account business sorted out; once I was back in, I recalled that I’d originally signed up while on a drive to find a service like Pandora (an internet radio/music discovery system) that would work without my having to fake an American citizenship. Imeem definitely meets that standard.
I haven’t spent hundreds of hours listening, yet, but I’m pretty pleased with the band/song selection and the recommendation mechanism.
I am, however, getting a little tired of re-selecting bands I enjoy (I’m looking at you yahoo! music/facebook/etc) – if I had the time I’d buy out personal.info and create a system that does nothing but cross-manage service profiles.
