This List (No.1)
23rd June 2016
This week I enjoyed this…
- Football and basketball game hidden within Facebook’s Messenger app. Insanely addictive if you start a game with competitive friends.
- ‘Binge Scale’ from Netflix ranking their shows on a spectrum from devour to savour. On average, users finish an entire season of any given show only one week after starting it.
- Podcast series called Revisionist History. Each week Malcolm Gladwell will reinterpret a previously overlooked event, idea or person from the past. The recent first episode examined the strange phenomenon of a ‘token’ in the world of art and politics - an outsider whose success serves not to alleviate discrimination but perpetuate it.
- Track from Wye Oak that was just released on a collection of outtakes from their previous two LPs. To my ears at least, Jenn Wasner still possesses one of the best voices in indie rock.
This is a short weekly list of things I think are interesting or novel on the internet and beyond. I work in insight and audience understanding for a record label so will often share articles I find compelling in music, tech, design and consumer behaviour.
