Lately I've started having internet radio stations going in the  
background and when I hear something I want to check out more I push  
the Audio Hijack button and get it into my iPod playlist for "radio  
snags". Then I listen more carefully when walking or traveling. I  
look for the streams at 192 kbps and hijack recordings at 160 kbps in  
the AAC format. Audio fidelity is ok for listening for finding new  
music or learning production and mixing tricks. If I should hear  
something really good I go looking for a CD. I have also found new  
music by the P2P community SoulSeek by doing a search for something  
obscure that I like and then viewing the shared files of someone that  
pops up among the search hits (if they have what I was searching for  
chances are they have more in line with my taste). I also spend some  
time listening to the streams at www.jamendo.com and sometimes  
download music for iPod listening. Initially it may be difficult to  
sort out the crap but as soon as you get connected with "community  
friends"  the recommendation engine starts hinting at "stuff you will  
probably like".
