The latest post is an interview with Tim Westergren, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Pandora the online music recommendation service.
If you don’t know Pandora, you’re in for a treat. Tell it some things about yourself and in a few seconds, it’s playing music you’ll really like but may never have heard of.
Pandora, like many Internet radio stations is under threat thanks to the RIAA short-sightedly jacking up the royalty fees of Internet radio stations.
I don’t know about you, but I discover a lot of the music I buy through Internet radio services like Pandora. Seems crazy to cut off this source of promotion and revenue just as CD sales are plummeting. The spasms of an industry in panic.
