Building off of the success of peer music recommendation and micro-blogging sites, a new idea has entered the fray. Blip.fm is a simple idea that enables people to share what they are listening to and pair it with a short sub-150 character comment. Amongst the similar sites like Muxtape and Last.fm, Blip.fm has been dubbed the “Twitter for Music.” Users already enjoy a layout that badges power users and offers plenty of ways to track down others with similar music tastes. Simple keyboard controls and a scrolling list of “blips” aid an already straightforward website design. The site gives everyone the opportunity to feel like a DJ while keeping in touch with contacts through quick comments. It is important to note that Blip puts the burden of copyright violation on the users who upload music, but only time will tell how that defense works out.
