I feel like I’m in the stream of significance

So a bit over a week ago, on the 16th, Jacob and myself went to the Sound Unbound: Strategies for Reconstructing Media lecture at UCB. The speakers were Paul D. Miller AKA DJ Spooky, Shepard Fairey, and two members from Four 7. DJ Spooky's vocation is obvious from the name, Shepard Fairey is a graphic artist responsible for Andre the Giant has a Posse, and Four 7 is a group of digital graffiti artists, avatars of information culture and media architects.

Today I find on memepool an entry titles "Whitney Houston vs. Kraftwerk and other fruits of plunderphonics and it's diy twin uploadphonix." with links to 21C Magazine which is a project of DJ Spooky's that he announced at the lecture. Now I know its lame and silly for me to feel somehow more important because I'm in the know about something on memepool, but I do. This is all predicated on the fact that I think memepool is somehow a zeitgeist bellwether (Band Name?). So check out 21C Magazine, it looks pretty cool.
