Interview With Ethan Diamond Of Bandcamp

Any band or musician can post their music on the site sell it and also offer merchandise and tickets for live performances and the artists keep more than eighty percent of the profit band. Camp had been steadily growing since its launch in two thousand seven but last year was its biggest yet. Traffic to the site surged as concerts and festivals. Mostly shut down. You know as you said. We're essentially an online record store and use a community where fans connect with artists and directly. Support them and about half. The business is physical record. So vinyl cassettes cds. A lot of t-shirts as well and then half the business is a digital music. So people buying Digital and digital tracks directly from the artist and we also recently launched live streaming. So now tickets are part of it as well but You know. I would say that the thing that really sets us apart is that we just built the whole company and the welfare of the artist. So we don't we don't sell advertising. We don't really focus on subscriptions. We just help. Artists sell their music. And then we take a small revenue share on every sale. So what to say is that we only make money. If artists make a lot more money and sort of alignment of interest that we have built into our business model is really just everything about i would were. I would say an artist. I music company and something like eighty. Five percent on average of the revenue goes directly to the artist right. Yeah it's it ends up being There's payment processing fees Fee so on our and it varies by transactions is comes out to about eighty two percents that goes directly to the to the artist and then we pay that out every it usually takes about twenty four to forty eight hours. I've heard it described a little bit like esi for independent music. Is that a fair comparison. Totally yeah i and which i take is a complimentary.

Streaming music services fighting for your ears
"Has never been more important. You see in the new world of streaming If an artist can create that perfect single, their song will be streamed billions and billions of times, making them anywhere from 2 to $3. Welcome back to for my Mariana Trail that was comedian Trevor Noah, making a music streaming joke while hosting last month's Grammy Awards ceremony. This hour. We've been talking about artist compensation in the age of music streaming and in the age of the pandemic, I'm talking with Cody Fitzgerald and Josephine Shetty, both co founders of the Union of musicians and Allied Workers. And both musicians themselves. Josh can the CEO at Band Camp and not still going? Oh Sky associate editor here at KQED for KQED Arts So Trevor Noah joke on a stage like the Grammy shows that there's pop culture level awareness enough to make a joke that you know the audience will get nasty. Do you think this could be an inflection point? Culturally, where organizing efforts can maybe move the needle on artist? Compensation? Is this movement that will gain momentum? You think Radio. I think for so long music and art in general, such an individualistic pursue and then also not to mention artist kind of a lot of the time feel pressure to project this image of financial success, which makes it really hard to transparently talk about the economic realities of music. So I think just the fact that artists are building collective power and just talking about how much they make out in the open and identifying as workers is actually a big cultural shift, But I think we'll make this Conversation. Keep progressing. And Eric

How extreme weather threatens the internet
"Your phone may be wireless but the internet infrastructure it depends on is not our access to the internet is all on fiber optic cable and that capable of courses either run underground or strung across telephone poles. David theodore help develop broadband technology in the nineteen eighties and is now co founder of a company called climate. resilient internet. He says extreme storms and flooding can damage fiber optic cables and 'cause internet outages that have major consequences data underlies of all of our critical infrastructure.

We're talk a lot about intent and figuring out which visitors mattered and where they're coming from but before we get into that just tell us a little bit about yourself and about click. Three sixty yeah. It's what i never know. How far back to these kinds of questions like do i go back to the time or do we just start with the company I'll tell you what i think is super interesting. It's sort of it'll bring us into this. Conversation is the way in which ended up with the party or click through sixty is throughout. My career started very commoditised sales space. Where you know. There's really no way to actually know what a qualified lead is a numbers game or pubic contacted. Hopefully converts and then from there actually moved into more of the world of marketing where we're putting signs on wall and hoping people call And there's a problem with hope in marketing right. There's really no place for gosh. I hope they calls me And so i've been whittling down the ability marketers. The information needed to know where their budgets are allocated. So when i originally bumped into my partner who is in the process of learning about or anti building out this marketing intent machine That's really saw that there was an opportunity to give marketers that immediate feedback on. What's working and what's not so what the click three sixty platform really is its customer journey. Optimization by far is the form of deep learning to recognize that behavioral intent that says this person is more likely to confer rather than this person so that marketer can actually reach back and say these marketing channels actually source those people mostly to revenue. So we move away from that dreaded guests in tests where i go back that sign on wall do a bunch of marketing. Hope somebody calls to being able to measure in real time that behavioral intent that says there's there signaling in patterns of behavior that says this person's going to buy marketer can actually affect that deal by seeing that

"Two. Today's lesson from the art of business. Wars waging war ever heard of book stacks unlimited probably not. That's because the online bookstore was launched in nineteen ninety two. It was a good idea. Sure but it failed. Why when it has to do with what's called the first mover advantage book. Stacks unlimited came onto the online book. Selling seen i. Sometimes that's a good thing. A company that offers something new and valuable i can carve out a big sector of the market. Your brand becomes synonymous with the product. Which is good for business right. We think of band-aid at he's a bandages. All around the globe now referred to as bandits even if they're not band aid brand but being a first mover comes with risks like making a move too early. That's what happened in nineteen ninety-two with book. Stacks unlimited when the virtual bookstore came on the scene. Not enough folks were comfortable with the internet to spend time buying books online but by the time a certain other bookseller turned mega corporation entered the market. Three years later customers were ready. And how amazon founded success. So it's not always about striking first but striking at the exact right time and not a moment too late and that's the idea behind the wild success of the online dating app bumble as well.

We are wrapping that up today as a matter of fact and so wanted to have you back and talk about the happiness month and some of the things that we did in.

Can you talk about how that went and how it still going on. Yeah it's been fantastic to log onto a facebook or instagram. Or you're just get on social media and see how many people are participating in the gratitude challenge. It's not something i do every day. I'm not a social media hound.

And i'm excited about it. Not just from what's already happened but from the fact that this is something that doesn't have to stop just because it's the end of march. I mean you don't have to stop being grateful. I mean i can't be happy anymore exactly exactly. I did my ten. Which is what we're asking everybody to do. But then i found myself in the next couple of days finding things to be grateful for and posting those as well quit numbering them. But you know still continuing to just share gratitude and invite other people to share it as well is something that we can do all year round. There's no reason to stop it

We appreciate the opportunity to share our vision. What we're working on. I just want to mention that we would not be able to do this without the support of the good people fund They are a fiscal sponsor. There are support. They are a wonderful sponsor generally and we would not be able to be where we are without them and also without two other key advisers. Dr rachel fish. Who's the head of the kraft family foundation against antisemitism together beat hate and also read the barsky who is the director of the jewish teen initiative at combined. Yours philanthropies in boston. These three organizations and people have been so supportive of us and we wouldn't be where we are today without them. We look forward to more.

We are people who had heritage so to me. We tell our stories through who we are as who you know. The origins of the people hood the chosen people. And so i think part of that really comes very naturally to who we are and to me. It felt like people want to hear our stories. And when i get together with folks. Whether it's my father-in-law ninety two and wanna hear about the work in the world that he lived in and still lives in terms of fights that he continues to have as a up stander. I'll leave it there. I do feel like it's about stories. People want to hear the stories. On what i think makes us uniquely Different is that we have on our website stories and scenarios of what college students shared when they been confronted with a challenge and they've been very vulnerable and very open and very authentic about what they knew or they didn't know what they wish they knew. And how they unpack these stories for our audience and it's really quite extraordinary. We originally talked about this organization as being four high school students by college students. There's probably a better way to say that we thought about having this be a initiative that really highlighted the voice of the college student for the high school students. One of the dimensions of our website is really hearing individuals students stories and we want us want track. Talk to be a neutral entrusted source of content. We don't want take a position. We want to offer opportunities for the students themselves to hear from others and learn about what's important to them through the lens of their peers and i think tried talk is really fitting for that type of conversation. In fact our next webinar is going to be a student only webinar. That is going to be colleague current college students..

That's really the heart of tribe talk. Let's talk about the future. What are your hopes and aspirations going forward michelle. Let's start with you. One of the main goals of for tribe talk is to help. Jewish students find their way to college through the college search process. Once they're on campus empowering them to feel proud of being jewish on campus and preparing them to encounter any antisemitism and anti zionism challenges they may face. We really hope to be the bridge from high school to college by.

Whatever it is is that we're giving these kids agency and they're finding the ladders of the kids. Were a little bit older than them. A little bit younger than them and they are knitting together fabric of a community of caring individuals that are stepping up. And saying hey this is not okay. This is my college experience too so again. What i tried talk is unique in terms of what it's creating as we are in. Its berthier ninety.

"Student. But it's also the college student junior or senior year. It's never too late to get the information you need to survive and thrive on campus. Right and i think one of the things that we are not We'll probably talk about this. Oh further down in the The interview is we are not an advocacy group because thankfully ad l. and san with us in opener media helped of many many many other organizations. That are out there that are doing important work that we can direct our students to go to to get clarity to learn about having more of an understanding about topics that just don't feel as well informed so again it's really about that landscape. What i call the ground the ground cover if you will to really give them a chance to be able to start to identify. What is it that i know and what is it. I'm still that. I'm lacking knowledge in and awareness So i think that's really really important to differentiate who we are in a sea of other acronyms out there. I was gonna follow up on. Jude's point the landscape knowing where to go when you get on campus and how to find your jewish path and the meaning in your jewish on campus is so integral to what we're doing here. It's not only the standing up for your jewish identity and standing up for israel standing up for who you want to be as you become a young adult in the world and so if you really care about hillary that's great if you wanna be in the jewish fraternity we understand to what tried talk. Doing is not only the anti zionist anti-semitism is also doing the meaning making on campus finding a place for these jewish students to come in find a place of belonging in connection. That is so true. Michelle this is really a group of people and organization that is looking to do something positive for the students and create a sense of community as we do so robin suburb building community in two different ways. One way is. We started this year with an internship program. We had twenty five insurance this summer. High school.

"We'll do it online. And then shortly thereafter we realized zoom is not a place for six hour seminar particularly since the kids. Were already zoomed out. From all of the schoolwork they ended up doing online and slowly but surely as a result of that we created tribe. Talk which is really an information hub as well as a connection in all. Stay with you if it's okay. Let's define the challenge. The problem where tribe talk can certainly make a difference so let me start by saying not every student who goes to college ends up being confronted by anti semitism anti zionism that is certainly not the case and a lot of students go to school and have a great experience and don't really have any sort of interaction with any negative experiences however many jewish students are faced with some form of antisemitism somewhere along the way their college experience and unfortunately they're getting it from the extreme right and extreme left so on the right. They're seeing a misses a rip down from their door frame or they're seeing a swastika on a building that they attend like a hill l. On the left denouncing zionism has really become a litmus test in many schools for students to participate in a social justice activity. And so for example. There was recently an op. Ed in an arizona state university student run paper that cell said that student groups should refuse to co sponsor events with pro israel groups. So that means. If you're pro. You shouldn't be allowed to participate in climate change or raising the minimum wage or other things that affect students that have nothing to do with being jewish being israel but you're being marginalized unless you wanted denounced zionism and there are many many examples of that. That have happened over the last year or last few years. And that's really what students are facing both from the right and from the left. We have a friend whose daughter came back from christmas break and said that over spring break she was going to go on birthright and her four roommates. Stop speaking to her. Why because they said if she was going to go to israel than she was anti-palestinian and couldn't talk to her and her attitude was not anti anything. I just want to go and learn and see and they said sorry. If you're going to go to israel we can't speak to you anymore. That is happening on college. Campuses as my oldest son. Evan was preparing to go to college. He's first your student at tufts university. We have the benefit of meeting with someone about track talk Who talked to us about the campus environment and one thing that was really concerning to me as he said the jewish students feel left out of progressive students spaces so of my son wants to rally for immigration reform immigration reform that could be sponsored by s j p which is an organization that he probably doesn't know what it's all about or what it stands for and he shows up promoting israel he's gonna be targeted with the star on his back no pun intended in. I think it's really important for us to know how there's this. One person termed baseball card activism. So a lot of these groups are organizing themselves together. And they're they're leaving. In some instances the jewish students out in and i think that The other thing i learned at talking to him was that when things do occur in the administration is always eager to respond and respond appropriately..

I remember walking out. And i said to jude. We have a problem because it was mostly adults and it didn't get into the details. There was a lot of really great information but it wasn't detailed enough. No wasn't really the kids weren't able to hear what they really needed to hear and so i said to her we have to do something.

"Today's Wednesday. September thirtieth. America's blood pressure is up Disney theme park jobs are down and we're focused on one of Silicon Valley's most controversial companies. Earlier today Pantene tear technologies went public on the New York Stock. Exchange. It did so via a direct listing rather than an IPO. But that's not even the interesting part except to finance nerds instead it's because Pailin tear has long been known as secretive and controversial and to be honest unique with within tech industry known for Copycat. ISM. Penalty was created in two thousand and three to apply information technology to anti-terrorism campaigns by a group of founders who included current CEO, alcs, carp current venture capitalist, Joe Lonsdale, and Peter Thiel, the well-known facebook director, and inform advisor to president trump. Also pledged to help secure people's data from their own governments kind of philosophy of we'll help them find you. But only if you've done something really bad. As Alex Kerr recently told axios on HBO. If the US government targets somebody with a drone strike chances are that talents your software was used somewhere along the way. Pound tears since. Moved into work with government entities like ice, which obviously doesn't make it to popular in large swath of liberal Silicon Valley. It also works with governments if foreign. And a growing number of businesses which represents around half of its revenue. Oh and speaking of revenue and balance sheets pound. Cheers unprofitable despite a massive valuation and a longtime in business. So we want to dig into what Palette here is and what it isn't with company CO founder Joe Lonsdale, who no longer works pound here but who continues to be paid a consulting fee and who holds a whole lot of Pailin tear stock that conversation in fifteen seconds. Bridge Bank knows the INS and outs of business ups and downs and remains dedicated to providing financial solutions to the risk takers, the game changers, and the disrupters those committed to leveraging innovation to make the world a better place bridge. Bank is a division of Western Alliance, Bank ridgeback be bold venture wisely. We're joined. Now by Joe Lonsdale a CO founder of technologies also, a venture capitalist who runs Eight v C.. So Joe, what was kind of the mission when you help found Pailin tear basic idea was to take a really competent technology culture that had gotten way ahead of Washington D. C. and to apply to solve the most important problems going on at the time, which was basically to help bring together data to solve. Problems and stop terrorism stock attacks while protecting civil liberties the protecting civil liberties you obviously well, no kind of some of the criticism of Pailin tear, which is this idea that has gone from as you say, kind of protecting US troops overseas to enabling whether it be ice or NSA to spy to a certain extent on Americans how do you respond to that because it seem to be kind of a fundamental mission creep? Well, if you look at what we're doing, we're helping augment the human mind to act on data and act on data they're allowed to act on and to me it's really ironic that is seen as problematic that way because the whole idea was, let's build in such a way that people are only allowed to see share they're allowed to see in share. So there's audit trails you can watch the watchers. It's a rather than like the show twenty four were Jack Bauer goes and just whatever he wants to get the bad guy let's have a system. That only lets them use the data legally only the way they're allowed to you, and that's the whole point is helter is a privacy engine that lets you only see what the rule say allowed to see. How does Powell to your protect that data from talent here basically set up there, and it's very clear how pounder works with whoever's in charge always see who's accessing what so I mean I suppose it is possible that if the people using it are doing. So in a way, it's it's hidden from pounds here in charge all the way up the top could be involved in. Something, they're not supposed to be doing that is the power they have. However, it's designed such way. It's very hard for any small bricks to get away with anything. They not supposed to do because people talk about full control and can't see what happened. What was access isn't that one of the concerns that when you've got a company that's collecting and analyzing and kind of merging so much data that even though whether it be ice or the NSA or some corporate customer doesn't have access, there is somebody who has access and it does open the possibility of there being a bad actor somewhere. Well it makes it a lot harder to have a bad actor. If you haven't information infrastructure that's tracking everything tracking exactly how it's used and the has pounds here itself doesn't have access to all the data that people are using pounds here to work on. So it's not like talent you're sitting in the middle is able to see everything. You're always when I read a story about that, it's referred to as the secretive silicon valley technology company I know this bothers me a lot and you know what it is. Helen chairs culture is really good at getting the most talented engineers technologists in the world and saw the really hard problems in these really cool missions they go on with their customers to work on penalty here does not have very sophisticated and built out PR group. In fact, the PR strategy seems to be to avoid talking to the press I. Guess that makes us secretive but it's funny because we go to their site they explain. How the technology works explain when it's it's really complicated. Building information infrastructure is not easy. It's not complicated most of us don't understand it so I think rather than secretive is that it's doing something that is just relatively Tarik most people, Alex Carpet Interview with my colleague Mike. Allen for our HBO show about a month or two ago, and he talked about how even within his own family certain things pound here has decided to do have been controversial for you. Are there things are their customers their clients at has taken on that? You think man if I was in charge, we wouldn't have done that. It's an interesting question. Actually I don't have full information on exactly how it's working western countries in the Middle East I tend to be very pro enforcing the laws in the US never they are working with our allies works with thirty to forty nine over five countries probably were forty point. I'm very allying with talents here. Don't China don't work with Russia Iran Etcetera. Obvious one son other allies in the Middle East I. Don't know exactly how they're using it. I. Always get a little bit of a queasy feeling myself. Exactly what people do in certain countries where my values are not aligned with their pounder has a strong set of principles internally but I've actually not privy conversation since I can't say for sure that I, agree with every. Choice. They've made their but in general I support with Algiers done number like trout and all these things they've done does that include ice and I guess I asked the question because the company originally was kind of founded at the time of the Iraq war and as you said, was kind of an anti-terrorism thing in part it seems correct me if I'm wrong about this. The part of its technology is being used by not to identify violent criminals, but to identify people whose sole crime is crossing a border but not violence. Well, in general, the company has to make a choice he's going to support US laws are not you know I was actually when I started we joke, maybe we shouldn't be helping the IRS depending on different people have. Different views morally of that, and of course, it does out the IRS while I think in general helping the government do what does better is right thing to do I personally am very against some art immigration laws that said minor standing as the Obama Administration worked with here with ice and they actually ended up stopping a lot of child traffickers and caught law child. Traffickers, thanks their works Joe Your Day job now is being venture capitalist, identifying new tech companies which to invest. Do you see baby palim tears coming up from behind it? Because from my perspective on the outside, I don't seem to see much you've got a lot of big data companies but not ones that are aiming at the same sorts of markets found series. That's A. Really good question and actually gets the heart wise special company. It's actually something very similar to what we did without a apart is we took a bunch of really talented people and we worked on a problem that take four or five seven years to really solve properties very, very hard problem to take these things that used to be services and to make into products there's. One hundred billion dollars year services everyone around the world does that nobody else has been able to turn as many of them into products such a hard technical problem. So ideal hope to have somebody else spent hundreds of billions of dollars with equity driven team of the very top talent to be able to pounce here does I have not seen people.

The fiscal divide bright digital is now cheap with billions of smartphones around the world. It's a physical. That's expensive case for last two years. We've made the cost of putting a bunch of transistors on a chip that that's now cheap but putting a bunch of people in rooms now expensive okay so the measure of a competent society is one that can actually hold a rally if you can do that you are.
