„Last.fm aims eventually to have every music video ever made on the site, from the latest hits to underground obscurities to classics from the past.“
MacManus fühlt sich gleich in die frühen 80er versetzt:
When I read that, I immediately thought of Last.fm as the Web 2.0 version of MTV! That certainly seems to be their goal, and good on them for setting their sights so high. The fact they have at least a couple of big labels on board already (EMI and Warner, both of whom already have agreements with Last.fm regarding radio music) and they seem to be in good negotiations with others (Universal and Sony) indicates that it’s not an impossible dream. The Web 2.0 age needs a new form of MTV, so why not Last.fm to provide it!
