Personalized (online) radio services from the BBC?

July 7th, 2006 | by Andrew Ó Baoill |

There was an interesting teaser earlier this week, from the DG of the BBC, when he talked about:

MyBBCRadio [which will] use peer-to-peer technology to provide “thousands, ultimately millions, of individual radio services created by audiences themselves”.

. Elsewhere it says the technology will build on podcasting and the BBC iPlayer, so it seems a bit unclear as of yet, though it may be the case that they will link podcasting with bittorrent-style technologies (to minimize the bandwidth load), and presumably some algorithm for building a personalized playlist. Could be interesting – as with so much of the BBC research work these days.
