This is very interesting. For those of you that don’t know- the Last.FM is a service that tracks everything you listen to and lets you build social networks around your preferences. Its my favourite declarative living/tag gardening combo. Indeed I lately called it the most exciting startup in Europe (in part goaded by Dan Carlin, the BusinessWeek reporter).
My own Last.fm info can be found here.
The businessweek article is a pretty good one if you want to know more about Last.fm.
I still can’t work out why it needs to hire people people. They should be swamped. What is up with British developers? If I was a coder I would send in my resume.
