Right — I think this type of assistant would be very helpful. The key to the whole approach is showing the “why” the system thinks you’d like it and having an authentic story there vs “well you listened to that so you should listen to this”. Pandora isn’t bad, but isn’t perfect here by any stretch. I find Spotify playlists organized by someone are often better still.
