Yahoo! Acquires Webjay, Launches Yahoo! Music Blog

A couple years back, Lucas created Webjay,
a site for easy creation and playback of playlists from the Web. Users
can create playlists using music/audio/video from around the Web (with
a simple Web form, from scraping a Web page, or with a fancy Ajax
interface created by a 3rd party using Webjay APIs), share them with
others, include them on their Web sites, browse other users playlists,
play the playlists in any media player, or cannibalize the playlists to
create new ones. With Dave Goldberg (head of Yahoo! Music) running
around telling people that the playlist is the next frontier in digital
media, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that we’re interested in what
Lucas is doing with Webjay. Y! Music Engine has some interesting
playlisting features, open APIs, and more goodies on the way. Lucas
will help shape our strategies around playlisting in the future.
