Pandora and the Music Genome Project

Pretty interesting project. You just type in some of your favorite artists into the Pandora database and not only do they bring up similar music, but they play it for you. Then, as you listen you can give songs positive or negative ratings, thus further tailoring your sound that you like, all the while discovering new artists that match your tastes.

FYI, Yahoo's had a similar thing for awhile now. It's also free if you have a Yahoo account and is called Launchcast.

Thanks Brad.

Here's the web address for those who want it:

http://music.yahoo.com/launchcast/

I wonder if there's any way to figure out which one has a bigger database of music now.

Chris,

There's this really cool website called google or something that allows you to search the web too.


Might want to look into that.
