Opening Pandora's music box

Eric Raymond blogged about trying out Pandora Music, a service that takes songs and artists you like and plays stuff not only from them but also stuff that it thinks you'll like based on the characteristics of the music. His tastes are quite eclectic. (And yes, I blatantly swiped the title from his post. Nyah.)

Mine aren't, but they do run mostly in one direction: what the music industry pigeonholes as "classic rock", with a definite leaning toward Southern rock. My iTunes library has a bunch of good stuff in it, but I decided to give it a try. I set up a station, called rather predictably Tron Guy Radio, and primed it with the stuff I like from my library.

Two of the first three songs it played at me are from artists I never heard of, but liked when I heard them; the third was a song I knew I liked. I think I'll keep this one.
