Pandora: The Sound of Things to Come

Tim Westergren, who founded Pandora Radio in Silicon Valley in 2000, held a Town Hall Meeting in Washington late last month, and I was fortunate that he was willing to come to the Voice of America studios for an interview.

Now, after a long period of seeking a suitable means to add sound files to this blog, we inaugurate the new audio feature with Tim's explanation, in his own words, of the choice of the name Pandora (drawn from Greek mythology) for the new online music service, which is now the world's largest Internet "radio" station:

A more extended audio presentation of the interview, and selected sound bites from the Town Meeting, will appear in the near future.

Stay tuned!
