Thanks to the internet, we can see that Light My Fire went from new to top 10 in one week 50 years ago but it seems like yesterday.

I specifically like that they have exactly a top 31.  Not 30.

It's changing culture, but it's neither saving nor killing it.

The internet has allowed extremely niche subcultures to thrive and grow. It is much easier to find people who think and act like you do and ignore everything else in the world.

Put another way: it's more likely you know more people in other countries than on the street you live on.

Cats have and always will be a source of cheap amusement.  The Internet changed nothing.

I had to ponder that as a teen to whom that mattered. And of course thought "Well it's WKNR "Keener 13" and 31 is 13 backwards. It was always 31.

So tfa says the internet is saving culture because streaming is becoming marketable?

Has the NYT become the Cato Institute?
