i would have to disagree with you here. i work in the advertising
industry and we are seeing only an expansion of print media. yes,
the other media portals are expanding at a rapid pace, but paper
production, print sales and other indicators have only gone up in the
last couple of years, despite the expansion of the web, multimedia,
cable, etc, etc.
and i think we might see a backlash against studio produced music.
if 'anybody' can have a studio for under $4000, and 'anybody' can cut
and paste until the finished product has a perfect sheen, how will
you know if the performer is actually any good unless you've seen
them live? if we get too jaded of this technology, the pendulum
might swing and we will place more value on the intimacy of the live
my 2 cents,
