beatcrave roundup kj09-04-30

This week on BeatCrave there was quite a bit of interesting news– plenty of which involved the technological, digital rights and legal issues of music and the Internet. But it is not boring, honestly!  There is a new website, Hypetape, that is quite similar to HypeMachine in many ways, and it is not just the name. Hypetape searches for music from various blogs, but you are able to create your own personalized playlist with a Google account. The nice thing about Hypetape is it recognizes when a link is broken, so you don’t have to deal with trying to find a song and ending up with a dead link. It is still in the infant stages, but it is worth checking out.
