This post by Nate Oman reminds me of a conversation at last weekend’s works-in-progress IP colloquium at Wash. U. A group of us in St. Louis were inspired by Mark Schultz’s description of what he listened to while he worked up his forthcoming paper on jambands.
The result was this:
What if law review articles came with soundtracks? Or — easier — listening recommendations, like “Play Dark Side of the Moon while watching Star Wars.” Sync the music to section headings, sub-headings, thesis statements, and illustrations, graphs, and figures — or even well-placed footnotes.
Naturally, and barring unexpected copyright impediments, I expect that this would likely lead to an explosion of law review article podcasts — a hitherto under-developed secondary market for scholarly literature. And the remix possibilities — let your imagination run wild.
