ok so I did some detective work and ello seemed to spring into gear 5 days ago, going viral today. of the successful profiles that are not directly involved with the running of the site, i speculate they joined between 2 weeks and 2 months ago. I have not "scrolled down" enough in the discover section to find someone who was not involved in visual art in one way or another. I would recommend, if you are ambitious and want to "get ahead" on this site promotion wise, that you a: spend a lot of time adding your invitees friends and b: act as a "greeter" welcoming people to the site. It seems that this site does not have a "musical" frontrunner, so that is up for grabs. Sorry if this seems cynical, its not, I am super interested in analyzing what is happening here, and sharing it. Almost all of this post is speculative bullshit, and you can download my music at http://b-type.bandcamp.com
For real though, I joined with a wave of music people who are dreaming of a place across between twitter and myspace. I hope that dream comes true!
