The exploratory project for Applied Digital Studies involves thinking about what is important to us that involves digital engagement. Questions that were initially proposed while considering possible topics include:
What is the purpose/what will this project fulfill?
What do I care about that involves further research?
What would I like to do in the future?
What are my current digital capabilities and what will I need to receive assistance with?
With that being said, I chose to look at the first 10 songs from the Billboard Top 100 Year End songs from 2000 and 2017 to see how popular music genres has changed over the past 17 years. In addition, I am looking at popular fashion trends among women during both years. With incorporating Spotify playlists and these trends, I am hoping to allow my intended audience to be able to see how the times have changed and what is possibly coming back.
