Pandora

For the time being I would forbear from using Pandora.  I think they got overwhelmed by their popularity, which I foresaw easily.  Behaviorally-presented music? of course–which means that at least some behavioral sorts of advertising are actually what we want.  That the internet has overwhelmed us with information is old hat.  Creating a sort of avatar that can progressively model our wants unfortunately can only make sense.  And here it’s very much not the data involved (the behavioral aspects) as the way it’s presented.  The world–not of the programmers nor bankers, not even of the doctors or drug companies–but of the admen, where selling your soul is last century’s story.

Pandora

It doesn’t appear that I’ve mentioned it.  It’s streaming music from the internet.  The free level is fine for the average computer sound system.  It would be really weak on a decent stereo; sounds to me like mpeg.  They claim the paid versions will stream more than adequately to a stereo; just now I haven’t the money.  I believe them.

 

Setup is self-explanatory.  I will give Pandora a “perfect” for what it does; commercial-free internet radio.

New Artist, Self-Release

She’s friend of a(n internet) friend.  I’m listening to the music right now and I like it, although for a 70’s hard rocker (mostly) ’tain’t quite my style.
