Recommendation Anxiety

15th March 2023

They say that people with electric cars get range anxiety. It's the fear that the charge remaining in your battery may not be enough to reach your destination. I don't own an electric car, so I don't get range anxiety, but I do use Spotify, so I get recommendation anxiety. It's the fear that if I listen to this track for too long, even though I'm not sure if I like it, that it's going to end up affecting the almighty recommendation algorithm.
