Spotify playlist sharing as a potential feature of Mefi Music

This recent AskMe, the sad demise of This Is My Jam, and some recent music posts on the Blue have got me thinking. How feasible is it to set up some kind of venue for members to share music playlists independent of the Mefi Swap? I'm thinking Spotify playlists in particular, and wondering if there's any scope for adding this as an additional feature to Mefi Music. [more inside]

Winter MeFiSwap!

You listen to good music. You pick some of it out, and you put it in a certain order, and you listen to your mix all the time. It's good! It sounds good, too good to keep to yourself. So you burn 5 copies of your mix to CD and you put 'em in the mail. Soon 5 different discs containing 5 different mixes from 5 other people appear in your mailbox, and this is good because you're tired of listening to the mix you made and some new tunes from cool MeFites is just the right thing.

MeFi Swap

Mefi Swap 2006 : Come on. You need to send out your CDs already. I participated in two groups this time around, and sent out 10 cds. I've received only 4. This isn't an election where that sort of return rate is acceptable. Get off your lazy ass and fulfill your commitment.

Last notice: you have until midnight tonight (just over 20 hours) to sign up for the current session of the MeFiSwap.

MeFiSwap music musicexchange

Reminder: There is just one week (give or take 12 hours) to sign up for the latest go of the MeFiSwap. The more the merrier, and right now participation numbers are kind of low, perhaps because the announcement scrolled off of MeTa in less than 36 hours, so if you were wondering if it's on, yes, it's on! Get in while you can.

MeFiSwap update

For those who are interested, I'm open to running another session of the MeFiSwap and have fiddled up the site (hat tip to the Metafilter Writers Group for the look) to make it a little easier for everyone to deal with. If you're in, come sign up.

I'm asking for your input on the future of the MeFiSwap.

Survey redux... the virtual idea was overwhelmingly shot down, so once again I'm asking for your input on the future of the MeFiSwap. This will be the last survey, from here we'll move forward to start the next swap on May 1, in whichever format is most preferred, so if you have any inclination toward swap participation whatsoever, please weigh in on this one. (And let's hope this stays on the front page of the grey long enough for everyone to know about this. Spread the word.)

Opinions on MefiSwap (music)?

Voice your opinion on the future of the MeFiSwap. Or at least the MeFiSwap as I've got a hand in it. If you've been a part in the past, if you want to be a part in the future, if you've just got a thought you want to share, here's an opportunity.

Those of you who participated in the most recent MeFiSwap: How many CDs have you received?

So... it appears that MeFiSwap is dead or becoming dead. Dreama appears to be very busy with a new kid and everything else that happens in life.

Are people interested in reviving this? I would be willing to do the administration aspect. I would NOT be able to start it until about 3 weeks, as I will be traveling and dealing with school related stuff. Undoubtedly my site style/options will not be as slick as Dream's setup, but I see no reason why it would not work.

This post is just to inquire how much interest there is.

Is anyone interested in another round of the MeFi Swap?

I hate to use MeTa for this purpose, but I figure it's worth asking: is anyone interested in another round of the MeFi Swap? I've received a grand total of 8 e-mails about it since the unannounced and unintended skipping of the '03/Q3 and '03/Q4 swaps, so I'm not sure if there's still enough interest to get things going again.

If there is interest, though, I'm ready to tackle the administrative side of things once again and will open signups for a new quarter ASAP, probably as soon as next Monday. So let me know, folks, if there's still a desire to do this.
