I'm using the shuffle feature on my iPod - what an odd collection of music I have... nothing like the Spring movement of Vivaldi's 4 Seasons followed by Death Comes Calling by Everlast. I'm using the shuffle feature because I've been pretty much listening to the same 3 or 4 albums over the last week... and I'm really getting bored.
With 5300 songs available, the choice that I have at my fingertips with music is not unlike being a consumer in general today. Think about it, choice is everywhere. Seth Godin had a great "edge" in Free Prize: Go to the extreme - offer a ton of stuff or very few items (or something like that).
If we decide to go out to dinner, there are dozens of restaurants, from McDonalds (which I'm not so sure is on our list anymore after watching Supersize Me) to Alfred's Victorian (one of the high end places around here).
Millions of blogs
Millions of web sites
Thousands of books, magazines, movies, and records to choose from.
Thousands of products on the average grocery store shelf.
Hundreds of TV channels.
Perhaps we need a shuffle feature on life!
Maybe there is already a BlogShuffle - where every day you'd get 2 or 3 new/different blogs.
But what about everything else? Do you have a way of shuffling through all of lifes choices?
