The job I used to do at Spotify was to experiment with what could be made out of listening data, but the experiments that worked were then automated to run on appropriate schedules. There was no technical reason that they shouldn't keep running without me, but external evidence showed that they did a few hours after I was laid off. People who weren't and still care now seem to have at least found the Off switch and flipped it back On, as some data-driven daily playlists are updating again. Currently no data updates are making it to everynoise.com, though, and all the big weekly jobs run on Fridays, so it remains to be seen what my ghosts there are still allowed to sing.
