Opening Pandora's Box

Posted By on Wed, Nov 14, 2007 at 1:26 PM

As long as we're talking about music, I thought I'd mention that I finally got around to checking out Pandora.com. (Yeah, I know, all you cool kids already know all about it, but there are some squares still reading the blog.)

Anyways, for those who aren't familiar with it: Pandora is a project of the Music Genome Project, which attempts to break down the various elements of songs. What does this mean for you? It means you type in an artist that you dig, and the Web site designs a radio station that plays similar music. You can give thumbs-up or thumbs-down to songs so Pandora can get a better sense of what your tastes. And once you've developed a few radio stations focusing on different artists, you can combine them in a big ol' dance party. And get this: It's free! Unless you want to subscribe and get some extras.

I've been playing around with it for a few days now, and I'm discovering all sorts of new stuff, as well as hearing old favorites. It's way better than moving that needle from song to song!
