Welcome to EX, the research report at the end of the internet

Hi, welcome to EX. We're a trio of copywriters interested in the intersection of culture and technology, with a bias toward the former.

While we're particularly interested in the worlds of games, music, and digital culture, we're also interested in any of the threads of information and art tangling online. Every week we'll send a digest of artifacts we find interesting from the internet. Features will allow us to dig deeper. Hopefully everything surfaces stuff you haven’t seen before.

If you have thoughts or want to hear more from us on any of these stories, hit reply.
