A website where users can log in and play music with each other.
  [vote for,

The website would allow users to play music from their homes and hear them on the computer in real time. Other user would be able to play/sing along with them, allowing them to make sweet music. The website could also feature a facility to record the 'live' music onto MP3 and distribute. The website would be split into different musical tastes and 'virtual gigs' could be arranged for certain dates. It would allow many music cultures and genres to mix together without the problem of language. The technology may not exist at the moment, but it is plausible.

       One word: latency.

       I used to live next to a guy that did this, but,as has already been mentioned, this has to involve midi *spits in disgust* to avoid against latency.   

       My neighbour, being the muso he was, just liked the musical interaction, but his monitors being as loud as they were, I really wished he just had some mates come around with some REAL instruments
