Politics of bootyshaking
I was just in this great conversation on Twitter with a slew of interesting dj/producer/event promoters. Even though some of them kept saying twitter is a bad place to talk about this - a lot of really smart stuff got said and I think people reading probably learned a lot. I don't think public debate is necessarily going to change the minds of the person you are debating (if you see it as a debate), but I DO think it can reach out to the much larger audience of people reading the debate/discussion, and it can affect them. I am really glad that people have these kinds of conversations publicly!
I am also glad that there are so many people I know across the country and the world who are working towards the utopia mentioned at the end. It makes for some kick-ass parties!
