Here’s a quickie for anyone who loves music or wonders if there’s room for more entrants in the crowded search engine, music and entertainment space. Introducing songza, the brainchild of 23-year-old Aza Raskin, the president of Chicago-based software company Humanized, Inc., and the son of Apple Macintosh founder Jef Raskin. Over the course of a month, he and Humanized’s Web/Systems Architect Scott Robbin worked weekends to bring the idea to life. The site launched on November 8, 2007 and instantly generated significant buzz around the world. Like all good ideas, both the concept and design came to Aza while he was in the shower.
Props to Pilar for the collective intell.
