At the Webby night, an event to promote the Webby Awards which took place yesterday in Berlin, Eric Wahlforss introduced an amazed crowd to Soundcloud once again, putting it in a logical line with YouTube (video) and Flickr (foto).
Right now, there is a Jazzanova remix contest going on which also demonstrates the power of the Soundcloud API. It’s fascinatingly simple: Download the samples needed, upload the remix track and listen to all other uploads. It’s automatic, baby. And the outcome is of a surprising quality as you can hear for yourself in the widget.
Another very funny presentation about Memes and how they produce a life on their own from the web to the meatspace and back that should not be missed is by Peter aka The Waving Cat.
