I will personally guarantee that JayZ is NOT KY's favorite, or most popular, artist.

If he is, I'll move.

I haven't been able to find much information on just where this data is coming from. Reading between the lines, it appears to come from music streaming services that have registration requirements.

I only saw one map with any kind of info and it said:

The data for the map is drawn from an aggregation of data across a wide range of music services powered by The Echo Nest and is based on the listening behavior of a quarter million online music listeners.

I wonder if this is related to that piece on NPR the other morning about the scientist who was trying to prove that luck and not talent leads to fame and popularity.

I'd like more info on the compilation as well. I'd guess he's widely played on bland pop and hip hop stations so his music would essentially be filler like the unimaginative dragons etc... I wouldn't know Alice Keyes from Bouncy if they were on my lawn. Didn't know there was a new version of New York State of mind... why bother?

Wull I din't know anything about the gent until 2008 when I worked at that radio monitoring company. Because I din't listen to radio.

The footnote for both favorite artist maps at UT's link said "most played artist". I guess that's radio air time, so probably Clear Channel manipulating the market... also why I gave up radio except for a very few stations where I only listen to half what they're playing.

Firstly, in all honesty, I am a douche when it comes to music. I heard a sample of the Keyes bit somewhere, but the song is essentially new to me. Initially I thought he was doing a funny send-up of self-absorbed rap artists but... I think I'm with Bruce the map is prolly an effect of Clearchannel corp.

And I bet a significant portion of that science budget is for military purposes.

But then a shitload of science is financed through DARPA and I'm not sure where that money would show up... if at all.

Labor force participation rate for teens. Where does the idea come from, that our young people are lazy and entitled? Get off my lawn -- and get to earning your way at fast food, like we did in the olden days!
