Ooh Muse.net

I’ve been reading up on Muse.Net, and I like what I see. Muse.Net is a loosely-coupled, XML Web service derived Internet digital media supply chain. What that means in English is a system to let you listen to your private MP3 collection from any internet connected PC in the world, viasome very funky web service based technology. Your MP3s stay hosted on your own PC (so you need an always on internet connection) while the Muse.Net central service keeps track of what you’ve got and lets you log in from anywhere to listen remotely. Best of all the web service interface lets you do all kinds of fun things—for example techno weenie’s OPML directory of his collection. For more detailed info check out the excellent Muse.Net FAQ.
