I took that picture out of the window of a hostel I stayed in in Gimmelwald, Switzerland. Possibly my favorite place I have ever been to.
edit: totally didn't realize that the photo was supposed to be taken today, sorry for cheating.
The key difference, for me anyway, is that it doesn't show the hubwheel on individual comments. They are still ordered the same, of course, but I like that it forces me to read comments instead of judging them by their number of votes.
I like the idea of using art to store experience outside the brain.
I think one of the best things about music, as opposed to visual art, is that people are much more likely to approach it at face value. There is still a lot of music that is regarded as bad, or talent-less (easy example: "rap is just talking over a beat"). But I find that people are willing to accept that listening music is worthwhile insofar it produces a reaction in yourself that you find desirable.
This contrast may come from the fact that most of us, myself included, are more familiar with being "moved" by music than by visual art. Almost everyone understands the urge to dance.
