If you live in the bay area and are interested in learning more about Pandora’s approach to user experience and playlist creation stop by tonight’s 7:30PM BayCHI meeting:

Several exciting developments in social search and personalization help users find information: recommendations based on personal tastes, social trends, tags, ratings, popularity, and friends tastes. These methods go beyond the classic search paradigm of relevance and flat lists of results, resulting in different user experience challenges. This panel brings together panelists from Netflix, Live365, Pandora, and digg to explore trends in social search.

Rashmi Sinha has put together a great lineup for the panel including Neil Hunt from Netflix, David Porter from Live365, Kevin Rose from Digg, and Joshua Schachter from del.icio.us. I’m really looking forward to meeting all of these people; I’m a big fan of their work. Hope to see you there.

    Hi. Kudos on the quality blog. I have a question: is there any way you guys could integrate with iTunes? I think if you put together a widget or something of the sort that allowed people to access your content where they are used to getting their music, a lot more people would continually use your service. This may not be a new idea at all for you guys, but I thought I would ask the question / make the suggestion.

    Hey guys! I just found out about your project today after a coworker had told me about it. Really really great stuff, I have to say. I definitely see alot of potential for your product. It was noted before, but a itunes, or even winamp, plugin or widget would be spectacular! Best Regards, AF
