Dropping Knowledge

29Sep08

Drop Knowledge, at its core, is a publication designed to redefine what is “cool”.
Our perspective stems from the notion that knowledge breeds “coolness”, thus it is our job to inform our readers about the people, events, and ideas that are influencing the cultural landscape. Once informed, we hope our readers will be able to develop their own educated opinions on what is “cool”. Ideally Drop Knowledge will encourage readers to actively participate in discussions raised by the magazine, but more importantly, we hope to provide access to, and encourage interaction with, all the living, breathing culture that too often resides solely outside the WashU bubble.

We hope to reach this end by providing a wide array of articles meant to stimulate a broader understanding and appreciation for original works of art and service. By highlighting, for example, the newest fashion accessories beside interviews with individuals on campus that advocate for fresh takes on community involvement, Drop Knowledge hopes to draw parallels between all types of “cool”; for it is not necessarily cool to merely wear expensive articles of clothing, but to find truly original ways to express yourself, whether that be through fashion, art, service, etc.

Intrinsic in the nature of the magazine is its commitment to quality. Just like the people and works that are included in the pages, Drop Knowledge strives to be a work of art in itself. Readers will be able to depend on its factual and unbiased reporting, and contributors to the magazine will surely take pride in sharing their interests and passions with the public.

Drop Knowledge is a reflection of our culture, and like that culture, DK has unlimited potential. If contributors remain dedicated to the pursuit and distribution of knowledge, surely the magazine will be a platform for positive change. The all too fashionable trend of ignorance has officially been replaced. Drop Knowledge!

For those who are curious, this is simply our temporary blog as we finalize our design on the actual site. We’ll make an announcement on here, but keep an eye out for dropknowledgeonline.com, and eventually for a print magazine. Get excited!

peace,
the judge
