A Thought On Spotify
02/19/12 at 01:10 PM by Matt Chylak
Three years ago, when we first started hearing whispers about its structure, it sounded like the greatest thing in the world. Unlimited access to what amount to a quarter of the iTunes store, without having to pay? Type in a song and immediately get high-quality streams? Send custom playlists to my friends? It's magic. It's what technology is made for.

So why don't I use it?

As of this moment, I have 14,925 songs in my iTunes library. That's around 40 days worth of music. Yet my 88.37 GB of audio is a teardrop in the ocean of what is available to me online. And to be honest: I don't need much else. I've never been a Pandora guy or even much of an iTunes shuffle guy...I don't enjoy randomly hearing stuff out of context and I find out about new music from sites like this and from my friends.

It's overwhelming to have that much choice. I'd rather pick what I like from 15,000 songs than 15 million.
