The Echo Nest on Techcrunch

The Echno Nest made it on Techcrunch!

Interestingly Techcrunch seems to think that The Echo Nest is about genre classification (second sentence in their blog post). I doubt they heard that from Brian.

One reader raised an interesting question: "[...] do we really need a computerized pandora?" It's nice to see something like this discussed outside of the music-ir mailing list!

I really like The Echo Nest's very open approach to demonstrate the technologies they got. Besides being of interest to anyone in MIR I'm sure it also makes it a lot easier to attract interest to their APIs and communicate what kind of problems can be solved with them. But I'm not sure if I like the redesign of their webpage, I somehow had gotten used to the simplicity of their original one. I'm very curious what their next demonstrations will be... maybe some web crawling based stuff?
