APIs as Artistic Expression: the Neon API
Musicians take care to craft so many of the ways that they express themselves beyond the music that they release: their outfits, their videos, album covers, the typography used in the liner notes, the palette of the website, the mood of the images, the style of the logos, the tour busses, and most recently...

Lou Reed Comments on Digital Media Quality
