Hello ,

“If parts get too boring just fast forward - all the way to the end if need be.”

In 1988, the KLF shared a document describing in how to get a music single to the very top of the UK music charts. It’s completely outdated now, but an excellent reminder that pretty much all systems can be hacked. This was soon obsolete, which is also a good reminder that system adapt quickly to make the same hack harder the next time.
