My colleague, Dennis Hong, posted about his music preference while working: Add Some Urgency to Your Daily Workflow. Movie soundtracks are cool, and I wanted to share a couple Rdio playlists or stations — generally without words — that I’ve used for awhile.
Ambient by Timmii is:
Pertaining to or noting sounds that create a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere.
Concentrate by Trent Walton and 33 collaborators are:

Occasionally, I’ll listen to the Rdio Baroque station.
Congrats, Finch! Thank you for doing the following:

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday at the Observatory!1

Now, it’s officially out.
I won’t lie. I really dig it.
