Discovering Art in the Age of Big Data | Scatter / Signal / Noise -
Thoughts inspired by recent episode of Benjamen Walker’s Theory of Everything (part of PRX’s Radiotopia):
"But in some sense technology has helped me discover great works. In fact, I heard about the book I’m reading right now from Benjamen Walker’s last podcast episode. And I think about how I came across Benjamen Walker’s amazing podcast — from Roman Mars’ amazing podcast, which I came across from Jad Abumrad’s amazing podcast, which I first heard as a radio show on WNYC many years ago. I’ve heard some great music recommended from people I follow on Twitter. There’s no way around it: people are still the best curators of the art that impacts people. But now we have so many great tools to help us share what we love through conversation."
