The Matrix Online

 

In the matrix nobody can hear you scream. You don't need to. The matrix is a 21st century twist on pre-Civil War African-Americans' grapevine telegraph (whence "I heard it through the grapevine")...it's a means by which to reach out to the wide wide world from backstreets and backwaters, ghettos and favelas...by which to become eminently discoverable from far, far away no matter where on the planet you happen to be located...by which to be turnupable from Tribeca to Trenchtown to Tokyo to Timbuktu...

In the matrix, everybody is somehow accessible from everybody else. All roads lead everywhere. Operating within a matrix removes boundaries, builds bridges and opens up the universe of the arts as its never been open before (full disclosure: our original motive in building the matrix was to provide a cost-free means for wonderful musicians in Bahia to be heard beyond the backwaters and favelas -- ghettos -- of Brazil, starting with the guy below, who went from complete unknown to huge success in Brazil, who during the dictatorship got kicked back down to nothing for speaking truth to power, and who was forced to flee the country to save his life).

You recommend people by clicking on the categories they create for themselves (on their They Curate Me tabs). You can likewise be recommended for (music & arts related) categories you create for yourself. If you wish only to recommend -- and not be recommendable -- simply don't set up categories on your page. One can follow recommendations without signing up.

Recommendations/curations in series form worldlines, travelling in steps, leaps and bounds. Worldlines taken together form the matrix. That would be "matrix" in its original sense of "source", from "mater", Latin for "mother". We're a real mother for ya!
