I got a surprise the first time I opened iTunes while connected to the internet at my new room in Lund. A feature in iTunes is that it searches for shared music on the local network. Back in Bergen, local network meant the house I lived in, with three other appartments and no other iTunes-users. Here local network means, well, I don’t know if it’s just this block or all the blocks, but at least there’s always around 10 shared libraries available. It’s really interesting to browse around and I’ve actually discovered some new artists this way. But of course the title is a bit misleading.. I do need my own music too!
