I feel the most satisfied if I work on projects where I know about half of what I’m doing and I don’t know the other half. If I go too much in one direction, meaning if I know too little about something, I get too anxious. And if I know too much about something, I get too bored.

— Stefan Sagmeister

I need to move because I don’t like writing as an expert. I like writing as an amateur. I like writing as an idiot. It’s much more fun to start in ignorance.

Music Discovery Is A Burned Out Phrase

If music discovery faces an inherent problem, it’s that most people stop looking for music after their youth. 

Spotify et al. offer catalog music for the most part.  If you want to hear new music you need to hit the blogs to stream music via SoundCloud, Youtube, or uploaded MP3s.

But lack of content is not the sole challenge for the music seeker.  Music discovery is a human art form that can’t be discovered through a Spotify or Pandora algorithm.  No one really likes music until those who know it best show them.  These are the DJs.
