Cousin Jack rides again

They say that the internet is an echo chamber, that we filter out other points of view and limit ourselves to commentators who share our pre-established views. It's like we're singing in the shower. To ourselves, it sounds good. But maybe it isn't.

I've got that in the back of my mind as I listen to the "radio station" that Apple Music has compiled on me. Having monitored my music listening habits for a number of years, their artificial intelligence has got me down pretty darn well.

But the robot mixes it up better than I ever could. When the next song comes on, more often than not it brings a smile. 

When it's time for something a little different, the robot puts together a playlist every week of some of what my music "friends" have on. That's a good one, too. We live in amazing times.
