Bruce - thanks for the update on this. I am interested in the Pandora story because I listen to Pandora. In fact I pay for no-ad premium because I really like their music algorithm, quality, and I can't stand advertisements. I am also a musician and have seen my dismal digital distribution reports.

However, I think Pandora's product and mission are good. From my minute perspective, it appears that Pandora has been both buoyed and sucked down by the tidal wave of digital change by titans of previous music and advertising industries, desperate to support their significant overheads. They do so in the name of individual creatives, but perhaps their war cries are a bit disingenuous, since they have exploited creatives for decades.

But your article speaks to the ambiguity and ambivalence of the Pandora phenom.
