Guilty Pleasures

I'm enjoying Pandora Radio, which allows you to customize a "radio" station on your computer with music you like. Hate a song? Dump it forever. Find a new artist you love? Create a new "station" around him or her. It's created by the Music Genome Project, which is a wonderful name for a bunch of people who dissect music based on a multitude of factors and create a sort of musical taxonomy that says if you like artist X, you might well like artist Y and Z. Sometimes they're wrong, but not that often!

P&L have figured out how to program a single station with many different artists, which makes the selection even more interesting. I can't quite do that yet, but I'm working on it! DZ
