I don't understand the fascination with Pandora. It is a losing business model.
Anyone can duplicate what they are doing. I am a former sicentific computer programmer for the military, and now general manager of a network of radio station. Duplicating and improving upon Pandora's framework would be easy.
This is not a business model that will be successful as it is far too easy to duplicate.
