Houston

Mar 30 2007 Published by under Ramblings

When people find out that I just moved to Houston, they always ask “Why?”… or “Why not San Francisco?”

Well, here are some good reasons:

Top Cities for Jobs – Houston is #3 beating SF.

Top 10 Best / Worst Cities For Software Developer Pay – Houston is #1 (adjusted salary)

My buddy Nathan has a good write-up about it as well.

Sounds like a pretty good place to start a company (or two… or three) to me… πŸ™‚

Huh? Am I starting a new company? shhhhh πŸ˜‰

Pandora

Mar 19 2007 Published by under Ramblings

Buddy of mine showed me this today – its very, very cool. It can create a custom internet radio station of music you’ll (probably) like…

Pandora is a music discovery service designed to help you enjoy music you already know, and to help you discover new music you’ll love.

It’s powered by the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken, the Music Genome Project: a crazy project started back in early 2000 to capture the complex musical DNA of songs using a large team of highly-trained musicians.

Just tell us one of your favorite songs or artists and we’ll launch a streaming station to explore that part of the musical universe.
