Muxtape launched a little over a week ago and quickly exploded all over the blogosphere. Like a lot of people, I signed up and became instantly addicted. Just 2 days after its launch, Muxtape had to beef up its servers to handle the surge in traffic with around 5,000 people signing up per day according to Justin Ouellette, Muxtape’s creator.
Muxtape allows you to upload up to 12 MP3’s, organize them, and share them via a personalized URL that streams the flash-embedded music. Like the name implies, it’s like sharing a mix-tape with a friend. Those of us that grew up in the 80’s and early 90’s know the significance of a mix-tape. It’s that painstaking process of picking out the best 12 tracks that gives Muxtape that personal edge that most music sharing sites are missing.
