Wired News: Feel Free to Jack Into My IPod: “Warily unplugging his own earbuds, Crandall gingerly plugged them into the woman’s iPod, and was greeted by a rush of techno.
‘We listened for about 30 seconds,’ Crandall said. ‘No words were exchanged. We nodded and walked off.’
The following evening, Crandall saw the woman again. This time, she was sharing her iPod with another iPod regular Crandall had spotted on his walks.
Within a couple of days, Crandall had performed the iPod sharing ritual with all the other four or five regulars he sees on his walks. Since August, they’ve listened to each other’s music dozens of times.”
