Links To Prior Posts

I've written several previous posts about Pandora on my main blog.


My first post about Pandora was an enthusiastic description of the service written a couple of weeks after I came across it. It's interesting that many of my technical wishes have been met, but the seemingly easier wish to build a community has not really gotten there. They have recently expanded onto facebook, but I'm sceptical.

Dr. Pandora Love

Pandora can make you confront your musical prejudices. I wrote this post in reaction to hearing a Cyndi Lauper tune on Pandora.

Shaggs on Pandora

I wrote a brief post on my delight that The Shaggs were available for play on Pandora. They have become a delightfully intractable part of my novelty station, The Best Medicine.

Pandora Shame, Pt. 2

Upon giving a thumb up to a Diana DeGarmo song, I begged forgiveness from the Lord. The track became one of the seeds of my Grrrl Power station.

Pandora Town Hall Meeting San Francisco, July 19, 2006

I attended a meeting with the Pandora folks, and wrote a thorough recap of the evening.

Pandora Town Hall, UC Berkeley, Dec. 4, 2006

I attended another town hall six months later, and provided another recap of the event.

July Listening Tests

I posted up a graph of my listening test results for the last six months. This graph shows the evidence that they made an important improvement to the selection algorithm in June. Indeed, I received an e-mail from Tom Conrad that they had made the change on June 20.

And that's all I've written so far in my blog on the topic.
