Wow, what an amazing amount of work to compile all this and make this site. That Jann Wenner interview last year made clear how racist and culturally destructive Rolling Stone was.

Yes, a really impressive piece of work, both the analysis and (in particular) the design. Nothing all that surprising in what they found but still super interesting.
