I love the idea of verified artists, as it provides Twitter-like verification of a person who is likely to draw in large crowds/#s of followers. Another clever feature of the verified artist designation is the custom avatar. This first one is quite distinct from other tt.fm avatars and provides a great precedent for future verified artists.

If you’re interested in learning about the responsibilities and permissions a turntable.fm superuser has, this interview is a perfect read. There are several interesting observations from Olga’s answers, but this one caught my eye above all others:

This looks pretty damn cool. An online and real-world DJ battle/party between folks in NYC and Seattle. It’s like UTFO vs. Roxanne Shante all over again! Well, maybe not.

“Seattle DJ ‘s will do battle against NYC DJ ‘s for turntable.fm supremacy, with an accompanying Dance Party physically and virtually both in Seattle and NYC. The fun begins at 8pm and will go to 1am the next morning in their own respective timezones. They will time shift the battle, so NYC will start at 9PM EDT and go ahead and Seattle will begin at 9PM PDT. After the event the winners will be posted on the Turntable Battle leader board.”
