Newest New Player in Digital Music, Rara.com, Is Thinking Visually

A new streaming service, Rara.com, was introduced in the United States and 15 countries in Europe, and its design is based on the premise that Spotify, Rhapsody and other competitors have bland interfaces that turn off potential customers.

No blank search box or long lists of songs for Rara. Instead, they’re going for colorful buttons representing moods like “Sunday morning” or “feel like crying.” Those buttons correspond to playlists programmed by the company.

    Have you tried Musicovery?

    http://musicovery.com/

    It uses some sort of visual guide and avoids the 'excel sheet' look too!

Reese Turlington, Oct. 29, 2011

Digital media a regular part of life for many children. According to a national study by Common Sense Media, digital media has become “a regular part of the media diet” of children ages zero to 8 years old.

Infants and toddlers are spending twice as much time with screen media as they are with books, a report says. This is surely going to have an effect on education very soon. Books in the classroom will disappear. And that’s a good thing in my book :)

Richard Hamilton: Father of Pop Art:

The father of Pop Art, Richard Hamilton (born February 24, 1922) is a painter and collage artist from London. In 1963, Richard Hamilton traveled to New York. There, he began the exploration of using photography in mixed-media paintings. This lead to the study of digital media in his artwork. During the 1980’s, he is viewed as the inventor of conceptual art. “If Richard Hamilton were American, he’d be far more famous than he is. Anybody who can be credited with founding both pop art in the 1950s and conceptual art in the 1980s deserves more than a footnote in the art history books.
