Music industry

Amanda Palmer explains again why the record labels are doomed, in (of course!) under 140 characters.
total made on twitter in two hours = $11,000.
total made from my huge-ass ben-folds produced-major-label solo album this year = $0
It's worth clicking through to see her whole story, which is a perfect demonstration of the one thousand true fans theory.

Can I say again that I have no f#*&ing sympathy for the record labels? Neither does Ms Palmer, for reasons I've chronicled before ...

Unlamented of course as all slave owners. But CD Baby does a nice job of distribution for those artists whose works don't fit the 3 min attention span of the web.
