uPlaya is an online service where independent music artists can upload their songs and be given an automated score of the hit potential of that song. Boom. You no longer need humans to run record lables. Or something.
I dislike how the "success stories" section has no success stories. Okay, I want song examples, people.
Also, best question from the FAQ: "Isn’t music supposed to be art?"
Also, one metafilter commenter notes,
"This strikes me as a high tech version of the old songwriting competition / modeling agency scam, the kind of thing where almost everyone is assured they are primed for success, and they have some fees you can pay to enter contests for a chance to make it big. I feel like a rube just for giving them my email address.
This is snake oil. We have been uplayed®."
