pandora’s box, redux.

back in february i wrote about tim westergren founder of pandora internet radio being in atlanta (metroblogging atlanta here. the evening ended up being one of the most interesting and entertaining events i have been to all year.

in my review of the talk on my own blog i wrote:

tim did not disappoint. he told a great story about how pandora and the music genome project was created. but more importantly he totally responded to the passion of the users/listeners. and they were passionate. one guy described pandora as ‘leveling the playing field’ for artists and genres that don’t attract big marketing attention.

so tim is coming back to atlanta on thursday night. he’ll be speaking, answering questions and of course, collecting music for inclusion on pandora’s recommendation service.

i highly recommend checking it out if you are a music or technology nut. pandora is fascinating for it’s impact on both the music industry and the technology that is required to run it’s service.

thursday, 7pm
14th street playhouse – corner of 14th and juniper

    That’s so cool that you went to one of Tim’s Atlanta meet-ups. I wondered if it’d be worth going to. A ton of people in my office are hooked on Pandora. It’s such a nice outlet for music during the workday.
