10 Years of blogging

Ten years ago, May 3, 2004 I typed my very first blog post. At the time I was a researcher at Sun Microsystem’s Lab in the speech group working on speech synthesis and speech recognition systems, and so that was what I blogged about. Over the next year, my blog,  first called “Duke Speaks!” and then called “Duke Listens!”, (Duke is the name of the Java mascot) slowly morphed into a blog that was focused on music technology, and in particular, music information retrieval, music recommendation, music playlisting and discovery.  Five years later, when I left Sun to join The Echo Nest, I relaunched the blog as Music Machinery where I’ve been writing ever since.

I’ve written lots of blog posts. Some of my favorite from the Duke Listens! days are:

Some of my more popular posts from the Music Machinery days are:

I’m really looking forward to the next decade of blogging. Now that I work  for Spotify, there’s a seemingly unlimited supply of music data that will be prime blogging material. It will be great fun.

Thanks to you my reader, for stopping by, and  for all of your great comments, and feedback over the years.
