I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately (instead of podcasts) and thinking about the structure of wikis. The two have been informing each other.

I’ve been starting with a contemporary song, usually by a more well known artist like Kanye West, and then listening to everything one of their song’s samples…and onward. Song as wiki.

It has been interesting, and a great way to find new (to me) music and artists.

On a similar musical note @hisaac re-introduced me to Bruce Springsteen. An artist that I’ve of course known about, and heard, but never paid much thought. This week I discovered that the album Nebraska is heart breaking and good…I am probably late to this insight, but it was bracing.

I’ve also been listening to a lot of Mos Def, instrumental Pete Rock and Noname (who’s new album is 🔥).
