On Wednesday, October 20th, I will have the distinct privilege of moderating a panel at the 140 Characters Conference in Detroit. The panel will include Martin “DJ Graffiti” Smith – VP of Marketing at A-Side Worldwide, Dominic Arellano – Founder of the Few Records, and Jason Gittinger – Executive Producer of The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music.
We plan to talk about building a music economy in Detroit and how the real-time web can help build it. Here are the general touch points that we plan to discuss.
- Rethinking The Approach: The Musician as a Creative Entrepreneur
- Establishing the Value Proposition of the Local Musician
- Co-Branding – The Next Indie Frontier
The event should be streamed live and we are tentatively-scheduled to go out around 2:30pm. Stay tuned to the #140conf feed for the live-stream link.
What do you think of the topic we plan to cover? Do you have any suggestion for anything specific that you don’t see here that we need to discuss? Let me know in the comments.
It has come to my attention that since Bandcamp has implemented their freemium program some notable acts have decided to either remove their tunes or cease to make downloading available.
This is just unacceptable. I mean, what are you going to use now? Are you going back to use sites that leave your fans susceptible to spam and malware? It is ridiculous that many bloggers still choose to use such a service, but they don’t care about the end-user. This post is not directed at music bloggers though.
