Sean Parker, scourge of record labels, calls the bottom of the music industry | FT Tech Hub | FTtechhub - Industry analysis –
The “old model” of iTunes sells a lot of singles and top-40 hits, he said, but on Spotify – in which Mr Parker is an investor – “it’s the back catalogue that is driving the consumption”.

The iPad isn't a computer, it's a distribution channel - O'Reilly Radar
You aren't buying a computer when you buy an iPad, you are buying a 16GB Walmart store shelf that fits on your lap - complete with all the supplier beat downs, slotting fees, and exclusive deals that go with it - and Apple got you to pay for the building.

The State of the Internet Operating System - O'Reilly Radar
Many of the search techniques developed for web pages rely on the rich implied semantics of linking, in which every link is a vote, and votes from authoritative sources are ranked more highly than others. This is a kind of implicit user-contributed metadata that is not present when searching other types of content, such as digitized books. There, search remains in the same brute-force dark ages as web search before Google. We can expect significant breakthroughs in search techniques for books, video, images, and sound to be a feature of the future evolution of the Internet OS.

Rick Rubin on Lefsetz Letter
rr: I’m unsure how to penetrate today’s musical landscape. I know there’s good stuff out there. But who do you trust? Maybe you’re listening to the wrong stuff. While you’re playing some alternative album over and over again, it turns out some country record is the shit. You can only play one record at a time, but there’s seemingly infinite choice. And no map. Just charlatans imploring you to spend your time, and that’s the most precious currency you’ve got. I’d like to know what it’s like to be young, under twenty, to have grown up in this context. Is it any more comprehensible to kids? Are we crippled by our history? Or is it truly just a world of singles. If so, why is everybody making albums? Who is listening to them? And why do they think anybody who’s not a hard core fan will? And even hard core fans… If you don’t get it immediately, you drift off, to something else. Maybe a video game.

s: we need better music maps.
