New feature allows you to do a LastFM kind of thing where you input mainstream artists and it tries to serve you artists of the same genre from their collection. Currently listening to a rock ballad from some Italian band .. after I asked for BJork-like music. You can even get a widget of it for your blog.

Via Tim. Christ. Remember that UK crackdown (and Irish one too) where they arrested a whole load of people for downloading child porn from a website that the FBI had infiltrated? Seems the website owners also traded in stolen credit card numbers and so many of those arrested in the UK and accussed of paying for and downloading child porn (yer man from Massive Attack was one) were innocent of such a horrible act and were victims of credit card thieves. 5000 accused, 39 suicides.
Way late on this but Xerox had a bookfair in Second Life. Different at least.
Via DaithÃ :
Is that the same crackdown that saw judge Curtin and Darina Allen’s husband arrested? You mean there is a possibility they were innocent?
Curtin was never convicted due to the warrant being void. Material was on the Allen’s computer and the husband pleaded guilty, did he not?
Damien – thanks for the post on the book fair! Just wanted to clarify that it was not organized by Xerox. I had a minor role in helping to collect submissions, but the bulk of the work was done by Jilly Kidd, Selina Greene, and Roman Zefferelli. You are right to note that it was ‘different’. There seems to be a lot of interests in books in SL! I posted about two of the events related to book technology, but I should really try to give some sort of summary/impressions of the displays as well. Most of the displays are still there, if you want to take a look on your own.
