1. Grooveshark Co-founders make Forbes’ “30 Under 30” List, 3 Years Running
Each year, Forbes compiles a list of the brightest stars in 15 different fields under the age of 30. Grooveshark’s co-founders Sam Tarantino and Josh Greenberg were on this year’s list for the Music category, amongst other industry heavy-hitters such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar. 
From Forbes: “This is the time to be young and ambitious. Never before has youth been such an advantage. These founders and funders, brand builders and do-gooders aren’t waiting for a proper bump up the career ladder. Their goals are way bigger — and perfectly suited to the dynamic, entrepreneurial, and impatient digital world they grew up in.”

Tarantino and Greenberg were also included on the list in 2011 and 2012.

  4. We love when sharks out there make cool add-ons to Grooveshark and share them with the community. In the past we’ve talked about Groovylists: a sweet service that lets you import playlists from iTunes, Spotify, and Last.fm into Grooveshark playlists.

    Recently, the folks over at Make Use Of took note of how awesome Groovylists is and wrote a cool round-up of all its, well, use.

    Other reasons might include practicality – Grooveshark only requires a compatible web browser, as opposed to a software download. If you’re after your tunes then all you’ll need to do is log in via the web interface and click My Music.

    If you fancy giving Grooveshark a go but can’t face losing your carefully planned playlists then Groovylists can probably help you out.

    If you’re looking for a cool tool, check out Groovylists. And for a great detailed run-through definitely read this Make Use Of article.
