Music blogging 

Some very interesting ideas from MrG about opening up the music recording/distribution business to the people, in the same way that blogging opens up publishing. Its a long article, but worth the read.

There's no requirement for a big production website, no requirement for Akamai-hosted streaming content servers, no requirement for bands to spend big dollars on productions out of any fear this is their one-and-only chance. In my new model of distributed digital distribution, we can afford to cast all these pebbles up on to the beach, and in so doing, we can create a new industry around a new music distribution paradigm where the objective is not to extract graft for the privilege of owning an obsolete plastic disk, but instead the objective is to get the music heard.
