2. That pretty much covers it. Book publishing is taking the same route.

3. Panel 1 wasn't even that for the stuff I listened to.

I'm an underground music fan; back in the 80s, there was no internet and Radio/MTV didn't play anything but the Michael Jacksons, Huey Lewises and Madonnas of the world. So I was pretty much flying blind on a lot of artists. I had to rely on someone else's review or hope I would hear the stuff I liked on crap-reception college radio (aside: you remember THOSE days, right? When you had to park in just the right spot to get good reception, and if you moved, you'd be screwn?).

I lost money on a lot of artists that didn't deserve it, simply because there was no preview system and the labels had you by the short hairs.

Yet with "Free Pass" up there . .... well, let's take the example of SleepyTime Gorilla Museum (RIP). I first discovered them on Audio Galaxy, a now-defunct P2P just like Napster. I downloaded three songs from them for free. That led to

* Me going to see them 5 times at various Cleveland clubs.
* Me buying their albums
* Me buying two T-Shirts.

They earned my money. With the old way, I would have never known about them at all.

5. When my wife was working in Nashville, I saw a lot of small studios based

around a Mac desktop. I remember taking a demo done at a huge studio, and let one of our producer/musician friends play with the demo and the results were better than the large, expensive studio. The results from the big studio weren't bad, but the results from from a computer setup costing less than the cost of the four song demo convinced me the studios were facing a real challenge.

The inexpensive home studio was the first nail in the coffin of the corporate stranglehold of our music. Apple saw what was happening, and told the studios they will have to bend or break. They bent. Apple's solution has helped, but there's still work to be done to further democratize the industry.

Patronize local music and other arts. They speak the emotional language of our culture.
