Today we take a crucial step forward in the mission to annotate the world: Introducing Genius.com, the new home of this great knowledge project.
When we created Rap Genius 5 years ago, we had no plans to expand beyond rap lyrics. But the community had a bigger vision, and it wasn’t long before “Rap” Genius housed the collected works of Shakespeare and Jane Austen, the speeches of Abraham Lincoln, poetry by T.S. Eliot and Langston Hughes, TV and movie scripts, Chipotle’s menu, the back of a Tylenol bottle, the roster of the 1986 New York Mets, and that dream you keep having where your teeth fall out—all lovingly and carefully annotated.
Prof. Noel Jackson and other Rap Genius Crew discuss teaching and learning with Genius.com. Check out video of the G+ hangout/roundtable discussion held on Sep 5, 2014. https://plus.google.com/events/c3r7a6j986kjiqv4li1q74r01q0
