 Use Consistent Adjectives

Smart Playlists
redline
 
Merlin Mann kicked off a great discussion at 43 folders which inspired me to write up my system.

One of the best things I found for keeping smart playlists organized is to use consistent adjectives as a shorthand for a set of conditions. For example, "Fresh" means "not played in the last 30 days", "Favorite" means in the top 10% of most played, 5* means, well, five stars, and U is unrated.

I create a large baseline list of music I want on my iPod, then use the adjectives to describe useful subsets. One modification I'm thinking of would be to put the "noun" part first (Springsteen, AltRock, etc), rather than the adjective. If I want The Boss, it's easier to wheel down to the "S" playlists then remember if it's a "Favorite" or "Least Recently Played" list...
