Music Sharing on the Web

Robert Siegel talks to Jason Freeman, a Columbia University doctoral student in music, who has created a software, called N.A.G., that makes music montages off music-sharing networks. It relies on the way music files are downloaded — some faster than others — and puts items together that come from a word-search. Freeman likes the random nature of his creation, but not all of the results.
