On personalized radio station offerings:

For me, an ideal system is really one which gives me a mix of things that I like, that are related to my past interests, but that also introduces me to new things and tries to push the boundaries of my taste. These kinds of systems can do this, because they have a model of what a user is interested in and they can give you stuff that's just outside your boundaries. There's an element of serendipity; not just tracking the changing interests of the user, but changing the interests of the user by introducing them to new things.
