It’s funny, odd and a little comforting to scroll back through back in my last.fm profile and see what music I’ve been listening to since I signed up for the service in August of 2005 (when I was 26 and a lot more wiser):
In 2005, the social web was still completely new and the idea of sharing what you were listening to with others was just revolutionary.
In 2005, I was living in Columbia and teaching at Hammond School and had no idea what lie ahead.
What a long, strange trip it’s been.
By the way, I went a few years without having the last.fm audio scribbler hooked up, so there is so much data missing. I’ve listened to way more than 12,000 songs over the last seven years (about 4-5 a day if that’s to be believed). I’ve probably covered closer to three times that amount at least. But still… fun data.
