Streampad has been acquired by AOL! As many of you know, I’ve been working at AOL Music for the past year as a Lead Engineer. When I joined AOL a year ago, it quickly became apparent how much in line my vision for Streampad was with the roadmap of AOL Music. Now, we can combine the vast library of assets and editorial voice of AOL with the playback and library management features of Streampad.
Dan Kantor, the author of that post, was the creator of Delicious PlayTagger as well as Streampad. The impact of this move on online music would be for AOL to ship large scale software incorporating Dan Kantor’s webby vision.
