More discussion on music intelligence software

I've raved about how cool Pandora is in the past. My "Hawkwind" station has produced such gems as Gong, Ghost, Acid Mothers Temple, Grupa 220, and the like. A co-worker who's in love with Pandora sent me the following e-mail today: "Only Pandora could go directly from Dinosaur Jr. to Sebadoh to Jason Loewenstein." If you're slow on the uptake, consider this a nudge. With some fine tuning from you, Pandora can work wonders. Pitchfork ran a lengthy article about Pandora and several of its related brethren, which is well worth reading if you're interested in the history of such software and what its impact may be down the road.
