Tomorrow, my friend David Hyman
will launch MOG, a free social networking service that links people together based on the music they dig. The service's special ingredient is the Mog-O-Matic, a downloadable app (Mac and Windows) that keeps tabs on what you're listening to on your computer and populates your MOG page with the data. I asked David where the MOG idea came from and this is what he said:
My friends and i always turn each other on to music. i wanted to automate the process of sharing what was in our collections and what we are listening to without having to do the work of typing it in.
What would you rather have on your TiVo? Tivo Suggestions or see what all your friends watched? What Jon Stewart watched?
What Charlie Rose watched?
Friends and people you admire are the ultimate trusted voices. If you ask anyone where they discovered music lately, more often then not, it's their friends. More than MTV. More than Clear Channel. More than Amazon recommendations. FRIENDS.
The MOG doors "officially" open tomorrow but it seems that a whole slew of folks, including BB pal Coop
, are already hanging out there. Congrats, David! Link

Automatically responds with a customizable busy message when already in a call. The killer app seems to be using it to get internet onto ancient retro portables like the TRS-80 Model 102, but it’s been put […]
Most tech-media takes on the iPhone’s 10th anniversary are bland and self-congratulatory, but I like Tom Warren’s at The Verge. He laments how Apple’s pocket computer killed his inner nerd. As a youngster, he’d be constantly tearing down and building computers, even in the sweltering heat of summer. But now… …All of that tinkering and […]
