Pandora Introduces Thumbprint Radio ➝

Chris Phillips, writing on Pandora’s weblog:

Today we launched Thumbprint Radio – a hyper-personalized station for each listener. As the name implies, each station is based off of your thumbs – every thumb up you have provided throughout the time you have listened on Pandora has helped create your individual Thumbprint Radio station. This is a living, breathing station that will continue to change as you listen – each time you thumb up a track on Pandora, your station will update and evolve.

This is a brilliant idea. I’ve been using Pandora for what seems like forever and it always felt a little odd that the thumbs up and thumbs down mechanism didn’t effect any other stations you create. I can’t wait to give this a try during my next music listening session.
