Did the Decline of Sampling Cause the Decline of Political Hip Hop? - Erik Nielson - The Atlantic

Nathan Heller: Is College Moving Online? : The New Yorker
nicely concludes with terry's copyright experiment. also, this earlier bit is hilarious: "When brochures from these schools arrive in the mail, they often look the same. Chances are, you’ll find a Byronic young man reading “Cartesian Meditations” on a bench beneath an elm tree, or perhaps his romantic cousin, the New England boy of fall, a tousle-haired chap with a knapsack slung back on one shoulder. He is walking with a lovely, earnest young woman who apparently likes scarves, and probably Shelley. They are smiling. Everyone is smiling. The professors, who are wearing friendly, Rick Moranis-style glasses, smile, though they’re hard at work at a large table with an eager student, sharing a splayed book and gesturing as if weighing two big, wholesome orbs of fruit."
