Three years a go, I started on trying to uderstand how the
Yahoo's LAUNCHcast Radio works... What keept me awed, besides how wide and fully assorted is the collection of music it delivers, was how well visually designed and user friendly achieved is the UI of such a Web application... But most of all, my mind held
on inquiring my awareness about that three tiny customizable controls, whose enables the user to rate the song, the artist and/or the album... Every time I rated any or several of those, I got just astonished how those tiny UI controls works: Fast to sent
my weak, but personal, music appreciation to Yahoo, fast to update my UI... And without any glimpse of reloading the UI's HTML page... As if that application is working localy in my PC... Well, a little latency is there, but I ever was aware such sending of
my ratings and updating the HTML page, have happened through a round trip over the Internet... From time to time I still hear my LAUNCHcast Radio personal station, just for enjoy how, after three years on rating music, it delivers to me almost only that whose
I love and makes my soul go happy.

How have you prepared or are preparing your self to go on your road ahead?
