a post at Steve Krause’s blog recaps the differences between two popular music recommendation services: Last.fm and Pandora. Both ask you to enter an artist, and then will play a stream of similar artists, but they have different methods for finding those artists. Last.fm is a social recommender, looking for what other people who like that artist listen to, and Pandora recommends based on musical attributes, the ‘genes’ of an artist catalogued in their Musical Genome Project.
