The Music Genome Project has been around for a while now, but it recently got a fancy facelift courtesy of its new interface Pandora. For the uninitiated, the Genome Project is "the most sophisticated taxonomy of musical information ever collected." What good is that to you? It exists just to help you find new music you might like, based on the artists, songs, and genres you already like. Enter the name of a favorite band, and you'll be offered 20 similar groups. And now with Pandora, the Genome Project has gone deluxe. On the front page, you can type in the name of a group and listen as the system plays something by them or a similar artist. Each time something new is played for you, you can choose whether or not it "fits." In the end, you wind up with your own personalized station, all wrapped up in a slick Flash presentation and efficiently saved for the next time you find your way back. (in Music)
