Last.fm Spiral

As a follow up to a post from January, I continue to scrobble the music I listen to on Last.fm (I’m now up to 133,000 unique song listenings – madness). As I mentioned earlier, although the primary use for Last.fm and Pandora and their ilk is to find new music, they also permit you to use that body of listening data in odd ways that can be entertaining. Case in point – the Last.fm spirals generated by Sha Hwang (found via this Last.fm blog post). The version generated at the site is interactive and lets you see which artist is associated with which lines, but here is a static version to give you a flavor – very cool.
