Side Effects Of The Imeem Sellout

Remember when Imeem sold out to MySpace?  Yeah, I’m still getting over it.  MySpace is a place where startups (and existing companies like this one) go to die.  About 3% of each of my playlists were able to be recovered on MySpace music.  But that’s a rant for another time.

Something you probably didn’t know about Imeem is that they partner(ed) with Internet startups and provided music players for various online services (such as social networks), including Friendtown.  On Friendtown, users could click a button and instantly get a Friendtown-branded Imeem playlist on their profile.  Every network Imeem partnered with got disconnected from this service, without any warning whatsoever, when Imeem sold out to MySpace.  Why, Imeem?  Why?
