— Ace Brett sends this link to Pandora.com, which supposedly will build your own radio station by asking what sorts of music you like and then playing that sort of music. You can guide the program by giving a thumb's down or thumb's up to certain songs.

In some genres it has a limited selection, which I hope will increase in the future. Overall, it will give you some new artists that you may not have heard but that you may like, and in the end that's its main purpose.

I've been running it for 3 hrs. now and it's done quite well. I've set up 3 stations for different moods.
O/T Mr. Fan- Thanks for your answers.

So far, it's doing "ok". I'll keep refining. I just added "Yes" to my preferences as well. We'll see where it goes...

I read about a similar system that someone has developed that will recommend "Other products you might like" to people who buy online. It actually analyzes the structure/waveforms/rythems/etc of music and recommneds based on that, rather than genre.
This stuff is all cool to computer science geeks.

I told it the truth too often once to test its boundaries, and I ended up with a channel that only repeats two songs each by Shellac, Rapeman, and the Jesus Lizard, with one of three Unwound tracks thrown in every hour or so. Awesome and boring.

I have a site to email you. What's your address? Anyone?

Type in "Tool", and you get a Tool song. Then maybe you get a Godsmack song after that. Okay for me. But if you don't pay attention to the damn thing, it will wander off on its own path. And then it will start playing songs by Creed. It even tried to play a new Skid Row song...(shouldn't they be playing county fairs by now, or setting fires to bars in Rhode Island?)
If it does that again, there will be trouble, I assure you.

So far it seems to stream a lot better than other internet radio sites, but maybe that's because no one knows about it yet. Nice take on social computing. Ace is so cutting edge.
