I believe a lot of the hardships we face today, and I’m sure I’m far from the first to think this, boils down to one simple fact; we live in a time where information and intellectual property are the most important resources and yet have the least economic value.

What is the big attraction in music to the global tech-titans? It might be that we are on the cusp of redrawing e-commerce.
It seems that it’s agreed-upon that human curation is the focus of music platforms for now. It’s not clear how that will solve what at least I see as the main issue which is that artists need to be fairly compensated, but it could be a start. I hope that we find a different way besides advertising to make money on internet content in general soon though.
