What do you think of Drooble?

Good idea, hopefully, the interaction aspect of the site will lead to a rousing success. I've been a part of many music communities in the past. To be successful you've got to get it past just people posting their music saying look at me. When we can learn from each other and share in the music there is something to gain. I've charted on various websites around the world such as when it was still running, internet music charts are cool, but they really tell little about the music. It's more a web traffic thing. So never judge your music on a chart position online.

I've always been involved in my local music scenes when there was one to be a part of.
