Last.fm, one of the bestest music services to ever grace the Internet, is losing its three co-founders. Felix Miller, Richard Jones and Martin Stiksel are bowing out of the company and “handing over the reigns” to parent company CBS. CBS purchased Last.fm for $280 million in 2007, enabling the company to grow itself even further. I hope that this won’t mean radical changes for the company, as the announcement is a bit random.
I’ve been using Last.fm for years and I love it. It truly helps me keep track of my music and I love finding out what trends in music I’ve been following. If you want to see my profile, it can be found here.
