This article about the complexity of Pandora really fascinates me. Firstly, because I have never once used Pandora once in my life, I am more accustomed to Google Play, Soundcloud, and using Youtube Red to listen to my music, that or just downloading from links I find on subreddits of bands that I follow.

The word “appropriated” has become a buzz word in the modern world and has become synonymous to purposely stealing.

To have information without some restrictions and show that this project didn’t need a system of hierarchy is very ironic when comparing it to today’s modern version of the internet. For example, ideas of net neutrality and the […]
