I really do like the idea of extending the social experience of music. Following bands and getting feedback on bands that they like is nice. It does have a way to go. Does anyone else get recommendations that are really odd? My music library is filled with progressive rock and jazz, but Ping recommends that I follow Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Lady GaGa, and Miley Cyrus! Does Ping use anything like your iTunes Genius to pick these - ahem - "artists" or are they pushing people to anyone that logs in? If that is the case, then Ping goes from a neat idea in the making to really lame.
