    Hey guys,

    I recently ran into an opportunity to buy shares of Spotify. It's a private company still. I was just curious to see what you all thought on the service and the industry in general.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I had a chance to buy into a fund buying private shares of Spotify a few months ago and ended up passing on it. My concern was they were growing more free subscribers over paid ones, which made me question when they'd ever be profitable. I think this is the article I read at the time: http://readwrite.com/2014/01/16/spotify-paid-subscribers-problem
