Song recommendation software is all the rage now...but how about a network based in 21st century cyber-word-of-mouth, wherein musicians (and music lovers) recommend other musicians (and/or music lovers) with a click? Where those recommend others, and those recommend others... Recommendations cascading near and far around the world... making it possible for the unknown and the relatively unknown and even the widely known to be heard by people who might otherwise never hear them?
This is the MusiCodex (www.musicodex.com), prompted by the fact that over the past decade thousands of independent record shops around the world have shut their doors forever, doors through which people by the millions used to pass in order to exchange ideas and hear recommendations, both from other customers and from sales people with deep knowledge in their specific niches.
The above is phase one. Phase two will be Nested Radio, an entirely new concept -- interactive -- going way beyond just listening.
