Hot on the heels of the recent interview announcements with Linus Torvalds and Mårten Mickos, I am delighted to announce that Mike Shinoda principal songwriter, rapper, keyboardist, vocalist and rhythm guitarist of Linkin Park has contributed an awesome interview that will be in the second edition of The Art of Community.
I was introduced to Mike a while ago by Chris Anderson, editor of Wired magazine (who is writing the foreword for the second edition of The Art of Community) as Mike has been exploring many facets of community, technology, and collaboration in his work. He has been actively involved in growing a global Linkin Park community, coordinating community resources and media, ensuring the band has a close connection with fans, and more. He has also spoken extensively about social media and the role of large record companies in the modern music industry.
Outside of Linkin Park, Mike also formed Fort Minor as a side project, is an active artist and painter, and has produced a number of albums.
His interview provides fascinating reading, and I look forward to you all checking it out in the second edition of the The Art of Community when it is released next year!
