Songlines

You're at a restaurant and you hear a dope jam on the speakers. The hugely (and rightly) popular Shazam iPhone app lets you "share" the item and take a photo, but it needs more integration with the wider Internet.

Shazam as a web service with an API (all it does is store name of the song tied to the location). Then through machine tags you can tie in Flickr photos/sets, list them as listened-to on Last.fm, 

AudioBoo lets you do this without the song recognition part:
  • you can post images, location, tags to a 'boo'. 
  • would rather have it separated out amongst web services, giving you some of the functionality all of the time.
  • James Darling got this working, though it involves packet sniffing, not exactly an accessible technique to submit information to Last.fm. http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/ruby-on-rails/packet-sniffing

Shazam + Twitter + individually-geotagged tweets?
