We (@melex & @brainpicker) love music. And we believe crowdsourcing and content curation are two of today's most powerful cultural propellers – seeming opposites with an even more powerful intersection. To prove the point, last winter we asked 31 interesting people we knew to each curate one season-inspired song for every day of December, then released the crowdsourced seasonal playlist as a holiday mixtape on December 31.
Thanks to a terrific response, we've decided to come back with Volume 2, crowdsourcing a summer playlist for 2010. For each day between June 1 and June 22, the Summer Solstice, we're once again asking a different interesting person we know to curate a summer-inspired song. On June 22, we'll release the playlist as a free download.
