Savage Beast is now Pandora

July 17, 2005 ==

“The name Pandora means ‘all gifted’ in Greek. In ancient Greek mythology, Pandora received many gifts from the Gods, including the gift of music, from Apollo. Pandora was also, as you may know, infamously curious. While it might not have turned out so well for her, we celebrate the virtue of curiosity and have made it our mission to reward the musically curious with a truly unique journey of music discovery.”

Over at Savage Beast we’ve been getting a bit of press lately (NPR, Boston Globe, AP). Most recently Slate wrote a great article about us. They do a great job describing the core of our company, the Music Genome Project. Sadly, they haven’t been able to talk about what’s coming next from us. You see, we’ve been hard at work on a consumer application that will let you experience the Genome first hand over the web. We’re putting the finishing touches on the system and are getting ready to roll out a preview release in the coming weeks.

Thanks to the articles, there’s been a fair bit written about us in the blogosphere. Most recently this post from Robert Scoble, which itself was in response to an email from Peter Raymond.

What’s most fun about all of this for me is the chance to connect people like Peter who I think are really going to enjoy what we’ve been up to. Having a forum to “meet” and talk about all of this (what works, what doesn’t) is really the best part of the Internet for me. I’m excited about continuing the discussion once you all get a chance to see what we’ve been up to.

If you’re interested in participating in the preview, drop me an email and I’ll make sure you get an invitation.
