If you haven’t played around with it yet, make sure you try out the surprisingly engaging Plink, a collaborative, ongoing music creation interface. Using it is simple: change synthesized instruments by clicking different colors, move your mouse on the scrolling screen, and click away to play a set of notes. You’re working with others in real-time to create a song. While at first, the temptation is just to click all over the place, I noticed after a few minutes I was playing off of others. One collaborator would be playing with high notes while I’d try to work in bass notes with a similar pattern. Then, that person would stop and allow me to solo. I’d only intended to try it out for a minute or two, but before I knew it, I was about ten minutes in.

Good stuff.
