Every few years I hear about a site that becomes an obsession for a few months. A few examples would be facebook, pandora, blogger, wordpress. I think that lala might be my new addiction. It’s a little like a mash-up of facebook and pandora. Share songs, listen to new music, interact with other users. Listen to any song once for free, then they offer downloads for $.89 and you can add it to your “online collection” for $.10. I guess that means that you can come back to lala and get unlimited listens to the tunes in your online collection. I like the combination of free content with the option to purchase. It’s a good model for the future of music distribution.
By the way, happy new year from worship in the city! Worship in the City will be 5 years old in about 2 weeks. Let me know if you have any ideas for how to celebrate such a milestone, and how I can say thank you to all the faithful readers.
