'Anonymous' hackers to create a new social music platform

Anonymous coders are creating Anontune, a project that will stream music from the internet anonymous

| Social Networking News | Posted: Apr 20, 2012 4:12 pm

Ah, yes. Anonymous, the group that does these hackings in order to benefit the greater good. Social activism, justice. Well, a small group of coders from the larger hacktivist organization are coming together to program a new social music service that will collect music from around the web and allow it to be organized into playlists and share...anonymously.

 

 

That's right, a small group of coders from Anonymous are planning on creating a social music service, called Anontune, which will pull together music from various sources such as YouTube and SoundCloud and aggregate them so that they can be put into playlists and shared anonymously. Anonymous will not be hosting any of the music.

 

The whole project hinges on running a java applet which will provide the anonymity as well as the functions of the project. With running an applet from a group such as Anonymous comes some risk, so you do so at your own risk (read: I am not encouraging this behavior, nor do I or TweakTown necessarily approve of this behavior).

 

According to reports, the service is only 20% complete, so it still has awhile before its debut. The creators hope that the new service will change the way people engage with music. Think of it as an anonymous version of Spotify. The video above is the announcement from Anonymous. I love Anonymous for their entertainment value.
