I can subscribe to Sporecasts, which are aggregations of content that players have decided to basically organize themselves.

This bit of the interview intrigues me.  :) Unless I'm misinterpreting it, it seems a whole group of players could get together and collaboratively decide how they want their play experiences to be. So this means, for example, there are probably going to be groups of players banding together in these Sporecasts to, for example, collectively recreate a Star Wars scenario for themselves and each other, or dedicate themselves to collaboratively creating a realistic set of creatures and the like for each other, or anything else. Awesome!

Wow, I didn't interpret it that way, but that would be cool!

Wow! Pokemon-like Creature battles on phones! I wonder if they will have that for the PC or Mac versions too.

Sounds like that will be on the DS version too. t'll be interseing to see how those versions will turn out.

Damn you.  I was about to post that :P.  What a cool idea, and I imagine other players will hear that music when approaching your city.

Same  :D  That is just so great, and the way they came up with it is very similar to how Sim City was created...gotta love Will Wright.

I think this is a great idea! No to mention Gec was kinda doing this with the fan community. So now everyone can be a musician, not just people with musical talents :D

My little brother (the musical genius) is going to be spending more time on the music than he is on the creature editors. I can feel it in my bones.

They mention that you can jump right into any phase at the beginning... that's HUGE!

It's also OLD. Keep up!

Hey, perhaps my little idea inspired them to do so. :D

I would not be surprised at all.
