Phonographia.com - "What's It All About?"
So this postscript is for a few "What's It All About" phonograph connections.
Johnathan Haidt in The Righteous Mind, explains that writers who have fascinations with their subjects often come to believe that "the object of their fascination is the key to understanding everything."
Here's how the social psychologist Haidt writes about this phenomenon and how it is applicable to his own book:
Phonographia is clearly not the key to understanding everything.
Nor is Phonographia about the all.
The phonograph, however, like everything, has seemingly unlimited connections with popular culture, especially when you include all of its multiple-degrees- of-separation connections (e.g., 6 degrees of separation).
The following are a few examples of Phonographia's
serendipitous connections related to its alternate "About This
Site" nomens, i.e., "What's This Site All About?" and
"What's It All About"?
