Hey, you! Get onto my Qloud!

Qloudlogo
I’m excited to announce my involvement on the board of directors of social music start-up Qloud.  The company’s "My Music" application has been live for just three months on Facebook, and has already acquired 1 million users.  That makes it the  #2 music app on Facebook, with more users than Pandora, Last.fm and imeem combined.  If you haven’t already installed "My Music" on your Facebook account, please give it a try.  You can get it here.  The "musical poke" feature is novel and I find myself using it a lot to send songs to friends on their birthdays.

Founders Toby Murdock and Mike Lewis and their team have done a great job so far with excellent support from their main backer – AOL founder Steve Case and his team at Revolution LLC.  Directors and/or additional investors include Chris Blackwell (founder of Island Records who launched the careers of U2 and Bob Marley), Ted Leonsis (former Vice Chairman of AOL), Jim Bankoff (former EVP of AOL), Tige Savage (Revolution), Dave Goldberg (former GM Music at Yahoo), and Paul Vidich (former EVP Warner Music).  I feel fortunate to  be a part of this distinguished group helping drive Qloud forward.  The full press release is here.

Today, for Qloud, the sky’s the limit.
