Sean, GoFish isn't the first to do this. has been using wikipedia data since the launch of the service and what's even more cool is that users can edit band data and those edits get sent to Wikipedia and then are reflected back on the site.


Both Wikipedia and GoFish are really cool, but this is not unique. Wikipedia content is used all over the web. And "CCC", although considered another new New Thing, is really just another name for what has been happening on the web since the beginning: Yahoo and Amazon come to mind. As time moves on, and cool companies like GoFish grow (and get real revenues and profits), they typically move up the quality ladder and license professionally created content from suppliers like AMG or Muze. Nothing revolutionary here, it is just the nature of the beast.
