Cory Doctorow: MusicBrainz kicks azz, needs Macs

Cory Doctorow: “[The] MusicBrainz tools can sample a piece of an audiofile, create an “acousitic fingerprint” of the song, and then [...] fetch the artist, album, track title and other info (as well as reviews, ratings by people you trust, playlists that include the song…). ––– technologically far superior [than CDDB, which] can only recognize CDs. MusicBrainz works off of acoustic fingerprints, which are granular to the level of a single track, recognizably at different sample rates, and work across different file-formats.” (Go on to read the entire post, I can’t quote everything.)

The above was posted to my personal weblog on February 12, 2003. My name is Peter Lindberg and I am a thirtysomething software developer and dad living in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, you’ll find posts in English and Swedish about whatever happens to interest me for the moment.
