This might end up being a false pick in a year, but the concept is cool so I thought I would go with it.  Amazon and IMDB are basically sponsoring a wiki for music, including artists, labels, etc.  It is called SoundUnwound and allows anyone to edit the site, much like the Wikipedia.  The biggest difference is that the changes do have to be approved by the SoundUnwound group before going live.  The cool part is that this content will also be used on artist pages on Amazon too.  The interface is pretty nice and eventually this could be the source for music information on the web.  Only time will tell, but having IMDB and Amazon on board will give it some credibility.
