Significant because it’s the New York Times, but also because Sam Grobart does an excellent job in capturing how it feels to use turntable.fm for the first couple of days. The mind-blowing realization of what has just been discovered… and is free to use!

Other forms of online interaction (chat sessions, video chat, gaming) require your full attention. And that’s great — if you have that attention to give.

Then you can go back to working, hanging out or doing whatever it may be while you are listening not just to your music, but your friends’ music as well.”
