TastemakerX: faux stock exchange game for music fans


TastemakerX is a new mobile social game that creator Marc Ruxin says lies somewhere between "Hollywood Stock Exchange for music and fantasy sports for music."

At left is Marc talking about TastemakerX and the gamification of culture at the recent ad:tech conference. TastemakerX
