"What's the Future of the Music Industry?"
Five responses from very different sources, from a professor of business economics, to the founder of Engadget, to a music producer. Some are opinionated, others are more research oriented, but they are all interesting food for thought.
"How Much for That Song? It's Up to You"
A Freakonomics editorial from March, 2007. Apparently, Radiohead's recent decision to leave the price of their latest cd up to the consumers is not a new idea. The site featured here has a $.59 minimum per song, but had averaged over $2.00 per. It'll be interesting to find out what a well-known band like Radiohead will get.
"The Music Man"
A look from the inside out at Rick Rubin (producer for the Dixie Chicks, Slayer, Red-Hot Chili Peppers, and Neil Diamond) and his work for Sony, to keep them on the feet and pull their head out of the sand, in short, helping to shape their future.
