Jazzanova Remix Contest

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.
