"Can you help me discover more music that I'll like?

Those questions often evolved into great conversations. Each friend told us their favourite artists and songs, explored the music we suggested, gave us feedback, and we in turn made new suggestions. Everybody started joking that we were now their personal DJs.

We created Pandora so that we can have that same kind of conversation with you.

Pandora is a music discovery service designed to help you enjoy music you already know, and to help you discover new music you'll love.

It's powered by the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken, the Music Genome Project: a crazy project started back in early 2000 to capture the complex musical DNA of songs using a large team of highly-trained musicians.

Just tell us one of your favorite songs or artists and we'll launch a streaming station to explore that part of the musical universe."

I found this really cool site today called Pandora. (I have since been proclaimed Captain Cool by Nick because of it. Hurrah!) Pandora is a great example of what the Internet is becoming, and how web 2.0 is changing the way we think of the Internet. Pandora is alot like an Internet radio station. But instead of listening some someone's play list or something like that, Pandora asks you to input an artist or song name, and then uses it's Music Genome to find and play songs and artists similar to what you put in, and helps you find new artists, songs, and sometimes even musical styles that hopefully you'll like. I approve!
