Transitional Bopability

Hoping to catch up with a few thoughts here and there this weekend, but there are plenty of unpacked boxes waiting for me.

Anyhow, the first thought has to deal with the art of making a good mix tape (of course, now it's a "disc" or "playlist" but old habits...).

Half the battle in making a good mix "tape" involves making the right transition from one song to the next. It needs to flow naturally as done by a DJ.

So far, and maybe I haven't been looking hard enough, I haven't heard of any of the online music services attempting to collect this information and utilize it.

The question of the day leaves me pondering for a way to successfully mine this data from user listening habits. Done right, it might improve automatically generated personal radio stations offered by various online services.
