The first feature of the 2.04 branch has been checked in, and that became a button to toggle alphabetic sorting of the list (yay!)
Head over to the Todour-page for downloading the new 2.03 release.
Now a short time has passed since I posted about tagging on SoundCloud and I thought a small update might be of interest.
The effect has been noticeable. The song in question had been all but forgotten before I added the tags but is now on my top list of most played songs without me having driven it in any way. Now that increase may be an effect of me writing about the song in a previous blog post and I have to check with other songs just to see if the results stays.
Happy tagging.. it seems to matter.
I use a few browsers on my different desktops and I normally don’t really care what I’m using. The standard is pretty high when it comes to browsers and even the bad ones are good. But there is a browser I always get back to, and that is Firefox.
Although writing this little post about it gave me an opportunity to tweet that Firefox crashed a lot today, I won’t mind. It usually doesn’t (and has just had a major upgrade).
I don’t use many plugins, but those I have integrate well (on all platforms I use) and the browser does actually feel faster on my mac than Chrome. Then the fact that it’s very developer friendly is a big plus.
But the main reason is the fuzzy feeling of control and trust. Mozilla isn’t selling my data, and they work actively to make the web a little bit more secure.
That really matters.
I’m doing a small experiment here. I normally don’t tag that much on my songs on SoundCloud. Basically, I’m too lazy. But what effect would it have if I did?
Time to find out.
I selected a song that’s not being played a lot, even though I would say it’s quite good: Reading.
The song only has a few tags as shown in the picture below. Now what happens if I add a bunch of tags?
As the song is about Reading between the lines there are all sorts of tags I can add to it. So here is what I ended up with.
The limit is 30 tags and all are used now. It will be interesting to see if tagging has any effect in the plays the song gets (and the fact that most of the tags are on what the song is about, not the style of music).
