News reaches Quinquireme Towers that my favourite online social networking site, last.fm, has just sold itself to American media behemoth CBS for £140m.
I don't know about you, but I'm not wild about an American media behemoth knowing all the details about what music I listen to and what gigs I go to. I have a feeling they will not use this information for good. Instead, I have a feeling they will use it to try to sell me things.
This makes me think that I - along with last.fm's 15 million other users - have just been sold to CBS as a tiny package of demographic data.
I feel used.
I have deleted my account, and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of other people do the same.
Cheerio last.fm; it's been fun.
