Comments: Well, that was unfortunate.

I'll bet Launchcast and Pandora don't play nice. Does Launchcast also inherit from the Music Genome Project? I have a SqueezeBox and frackin love it; they made a deal with Pandora and I've been tuning it for a few months. It's suckered onto a few of my neural circuits, but you know, you gotta wonder about these feedback constraint systems -- also those powering news selection: Digg, Reddit -- and if they lead to a taste vacuum: there are no radical surprises anymore. And on we can go, into a discussion of how the development of one's taste, like a healthy democracy, needs chaotic interruptions, discontinuities, forced confrontations. But it's Tuesday morning, there's code to hack, and money out there to siphon into richer pockets, so why am I wasting my time here?

Launchcast, at least, has a knob I can turn, to hear more or less new music. I can also have separate stations in my account, most of which I have set to play mostly new music.
