Future of music

Web 2.0, Day Two Plus (kottke.org),. Very interesting pointers and thoughts on the blog/net space… Sorry Dave :p Particularly good snippet from Danger Mouse:

Artists are responsible, because for some reason we think we should be millionaires for making people smile. But I don’t worry too much, because it will be over soon. There won’t be a market for making people smile because kids will just do it for free.

Amen to that. Most musicians I know don’t want a million – they just want a decent living creating. The “business” model (“living” model might be a more apt description) still isn’t quite there yet – but perhaps a more distributed culture would spread those dollars more evenly, allowing more artists to prosper.
