This was a useful article touching on Dunbar's Number.. Which is theoretically agreed to be about 150 relationships people are able to maintain.
One of my experiments with putting my music online, is reaching out to my Dunbar number equivalent group of listeners by text to share my new music. I would be curious to see how this would shape out overtime.. seeing what sorts of "network effects" it may have.
I think an interesting experiment to try for the next year is: reaching out to 150 people individually for each release of new music I do. This sounds incredibly challenging, and yet I am curious to see if this theory is legitimate or not.
Perhaps diving into more details for what I hope to accomplish is necessary.. but this is just the inception of the idea :)
