Random musings, observations, squeaks, whimpers and perhaps the ocassional rant. About what, I'm not sure.

Opening Pandora's Box...

Scoble mentioned his use of Pandora a few days back. I checked it out – its basically a service that lets you identify a song/artist you like, and then it sets up a personal streaming radio station with similar music on it. You can create multiple stations for different types of music, and if a song shows up that you don’t like, you can axe it from the station and it won’t be played there again.

Oh, and did I mention the service is free? Or that you can generate persistent and sharable links to your stations so you can share them with others (the link to my James Taylor Radio is Very slick…

Part of the Music Genome Project, this is a pretty cool use of personalization, not to mention the music is great. Who knew opening Pandora’s Box could be so cool?
