Making Art in the Modern Day

"In 1993 the group. The Breeders released this song Cannonball, and it started to climb the charts. The lead singer Kim deal was by that a pretty important person, alternative rock, not somebody who seems like they would later be featured in a book called The death of the artist. She's a big indie rock icon and has been for a good 30 years. Maybe more. William to Russell. It's is the author of the Death of the Artist in which he argues The arts world, which has always been hard to break into, and is always hard to squeeze a middle class living out of It's crumbling. As Kim deal has seen, you know she grew up in Dayton, and she lives back in Dayton. She's doing okay, she said to me, but again, fame does not equal wealth and she said to me, you know, I'm a coal miner, I'ma steal man. I'm just another person whose industry is gone. Obsolete. The perplexing part about that door is wit says, is that while Cole is not used in the same widespread way that it once was in America, we still listen to music quite a bit. And it's still produces a ton of money. But not much of that money goes into artist pockets. Instead, lots of it goes to the tech companies that bring you the music. These companies are too powerful. They can dictate terms, especially to independent artists and even tow labels and publishers because there's so much bigger and so much more powerful, and we need to do something about that power. We need to reduce that power. Then there is the notion that we can all record her own songs with tools on our Apple computer and People we can break through the noise. But sister Jesuits That's mostly a pipe dream, one that has gotten way too much traction like this is a profoundly irresponsible message to be disseminated, and it's been disseminated with all the marketing power of Silicon Valley. Still, he acknowledges that Tech has in some ways widened the playing field. It's increased access, even if that's no really consolation to those who Ping to turn art. Into a living. My argument is not that the Internet has been terrible for the arts. In every respect. I think it's been terrible for working artists financially. It's done a lot of good things, and one of the things that's done is that it has democratized creation, and I think it's great for a lot of people. I mean, I'm a big fan of amateur creativity and people making their music and people writing their books. But there's a big difference between that and serious. I'm gonna just say it's serious, talented, dedicated artists who make the stuff that the rest of us actually want to read and listen to. I mean, that's the issue, right is like, Think about it. First of all, think about how much time you spend in an average day consuming art, meaning every kind of art music and narrative television and books and everything. Probably several hours. And then think about how much of that art is created by amateurs who just put their stuff out there. Probably none. But in any case, maybe at best, very little. So God bless all the millions of people who want to do this and put their songs online. This is not the way to have a culture. And it's also not the way to have an arts economy. Are there break spots You mentioned television and ah, I for all people over the last 68 months, we're doing a lot more television watching. Not that we weren't doing plenty before. Are there places for screenwriters or things that that have bossom DH because of technology because of streaming services like Netflix, and I'II bet Amazon in the TV business and on and on Yeah, There's no question that television has blossomed, You know, not just in terms of the numbers of shows, but aesthetically artistically, right? I mean around 2000. We got the Sopranos, and there was a 1999 the same years Napster and then all these terrific shows on HBO and Showtime and L. Amazon and Netflix and Lulu. And it's great. I mean, TV is the one art that's that's confident. That's blossoming. As you said, Why is this happening? It's not because we can get TV on streaming versus our television sets. It's because we pay for it. We pay a lot for it. I mean, if you add up the money that goes to television in your cable bill, Amazon Prime Netflix, HBO Max ESPN, plus all the money that each of us is paying every month. That's flowing through the system, and that's why television is flourishing. That's why movie stars and movie directors and screenwriters have migrated from movies to television because that's where the artistic Opportunities are if somebody does the television what Napster and now Spotify have done to music that's going to disappear. Overnight. Okay, People are not going to you know, Nicole Kidman is not going to do a TV series for 10 bucks. And maybe that's when people will realize what's been happening across the arts. I wonder what you see ahead. I mean, obviously. You know, when you talked about this notion of sea and like the death of the artist that was even before, as we talked about like that arts in many ways, kind of shut down for several months. What is the way forward? I don't know that there's a good answer. But let me let me say this in the last few decades already something we now call the food movement has arisen where people have realised, you know, we're eating a lot of processed food, reading a lot of fast food. It's bad for us is bad for animals. It's bad for the planet. It's bad for the people who make the food for us. We need to consume in a more responsible way. So people have started to pay more for food, and we've Started to restructure the food system a little bit around the edges, then, more recently, the same thing with clothing. People call it fast fashion like like fast food, and we're trying to be more conscious consumers of you know, cheap clothing that's made in places like Vietnam and Bangladesh. I think we need the same kind of movement for art. Because now we have what I call fast Art. Because this stuff has to be produced fast if you're going to make enough To make a living. At the very least, you have to make a lot and it's produced cheaply and it's consumed in haste. Music, text, visual images moving images, everything. So Yeah, I do think that we need to become more conscious consumers and pay what we can but also like with food and fashion. Larger structural changes also need to be made and the more conscious we are as consumers and the more we are aware of. The need for these changes and demand them from our public officials. And again, That's especially going to mean taking on big attack, which we now have so many reasons to do this, I think has the potential to maybe turn things around.

"Albums because they were getting them for free on napster. Revenue Stream dammed up. So the musicians fought back leading the charge was METALLICA's drummer. Lars Ulrich in July two thousand he testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on the future of digital music in a forty eight hour period where we monitored napster over three hundred thousand users made one point four million free downloads of METALLICA's music. Napster hijacked our music without asking they never sought permission. Our catalog of music simply became available for free download on the Napster System, and this was a problem because most artist a barely earning a decent wage and need every source of revenue available to scrape by also keep in mind that the primary source of income for most songwriters is from the sale of records. Every time napster enthusiasts, downloads a song, it takes money from the pockets of all these members of the creative community. All Rick Wasn't the only musician opposed the idea of napster. Dr Dre was a vocal opponent as were Christina Aguilera Garth Brooks Bon Jovi's mclachlan Hanson Elena's Morris at and our bow out Lewis's favorite nineties band the bare naked ladies. All those folks were part of a loose group called artists against piracy. Medallion Dr. dre ultimately sued napster the metallica suit claimed that napster quote divided and distributed software whose sole purpose is to permit napster to profit by abetting and encouraging and quote Dr Dre position was even clear quote. Stealing Music But other artists like moby Henry Rollins, and perhaps most famously Chuck d felt like this was the direction music needed to head in. That's as a situation or the connection between file sharing with Cisse's. and downloadable distribution as power going back to the people I also look at this as being a situation. Where for the longest period of time? The industry had control technology. Therefore, the people were subservient to that technology. And at whatever price rains that the people would have to pay for the whole debate over Napster Crescendo in September of two thousand when Shawn Fanning appeared MTV's video music awards wearing a Metallica t shirt. He was clearly trolling the band who sat in the audience rolling their eyes meanwhile I'm sitting in my chair rolling my eyes Carson Daly's INDRO. Everyday myself smack DAB in the middle of a war between fans. I? Try. To justify hip hop pop. Alternative to mainstream and rap to. Rock. But what I do is nothing and the battle with China part of is nothing compared to the battle of this next guys fight in the last year this teenager has developed technology that has revolutionized the way we all get our music and he is here tonight, ladies and gentlemen creative Napster Shawn Fanny. Just a month after fainting paraded across the Vienna stage, he was in a courtroom dealing with a massive lawsuit filed against Napster by eighteen record companies all members of the Ria they claim the Napster Service allowed. It's twenty million plus users to violate copyright and was thus responsible for the infringement. Eileen. Richardson, says she tried to reason with the labels and make deals that would keep them alive but it was a non-starter. Hilary. Rosen was running the Ria then and she. She was on sort of the warpath meeting with all the artists like look at this. Look at this. Look at this you know life as you know, it is about to end. But you know when I talked to I was like the horses out of the barn. Can't go back. Let's like figure something out but it wasn't happening the legal battles against Napster move forward. So the company had to get strategic. One of naps, offenses was VCR see back when the VCR's came out film and television exerts all clutching their pearls anyone with a VCR to record anything they wanted from the TV and that they figured violated their copyrights and would be way bad for business. The VCR manufacturers on the other hand we're who cucumbers. Look all we're doing is making a device and people could be using that device for totally legal recording. In one thousand, nine, hundred, three, the two sides made their arguments in the landmark Supreme Court case Sony Corporation of America v Universal City Studios Inc. we didn't do a single thing to affirmatively induced the copying respondents programs unless you want to count the bear act of making the machine there nothing between any of the petitioners respondents. Is the rule that if you know the Machine is going to be used for infringing use and you sell it is that enough? If, you know that the machine is going to be used and know that the news is to be infringing. That is a facet of a contributory infringement test. Alternately Sony prevailed, the court decided that the company could not be held responsible for VCR owners use of the device. So Napster pulled that precedent out in its own court case, and that argument almost would have worked except for three little snags. The I was that Napster allowed millions of users to download Jillian songs the sheer volume of copyrighted material being shared. Meant that napster was very different from a VCR which was only occasionally used to record a TV show or movie. And then there was the issue of Napster search index in that they had one professor Jennifer Jenkins. So say I was looking for Madonna right. There was a search index where I would go and so they had that index that they would know that there was a song called Madonna like a virgin on basically the courts held that napster new copyright infringement was happening because they had a search index full of copyrighted material. So all the service wasn't engaging in copyright violations directly it was giving violators a big boost. There was one final whip sees that really bang the last nail in the napster coffin and that was a little internal email Sean Parker sent specifically one-sentence quote. We are not just making pirated music available but also pushing demand and quote the operative word in that sentence is pirated says Steve knocker Sean Pirker in his private statements on an Z. Males was actually directly acknowledging that napster was a medium for piracy and that turned out to be important in. Court later, because the record industry busted him for it at this point, napster didn't have much of a leg to stand on but the judge in the case offer them a lifeline. He basically said if you can prevent copyrighted material from being downloaded using napster, you can stay afloat if you can't you're enzo and they couldn't..

The record labels would provide the music and the end result would be a paid service kind of like a proto tunes spotify. That was napster's goal but that's not what was nearly days in the eyes of the recording industry napster was just stealing music. They were pirates and you know how you've anquish pirates. You sue the bridges off them in an American court of law Er. Record labels weren't the only ones who had it out for Napster.

Why Circular Conversational Design is Best with Alison Greenberg, CEO at aflow

"Was reading online. That you have a pretty impressive background you went to Yell. And you studied anthropology you played in the Symphony Orchestra there. And then you did some work in the arts for Awhile and now you work in voice technology and there's been a lot of people that have come from the creative space so I'd love for you to talk about briefly your journey into how and why you got into voice technology years ago. Yeah absolutely well. One of my favorite things about this industry is how cross-disciplinary it is. There's really not one background of people who under boys and I don't think many different in that respect but I will say that really from the time I could talk. Language wasn't just the way I express myself it's Mike Currency and so music is something that I was always drawn to. I played music in high school and College. I still to this day. I studied anthropology because of how central language was to it as a social science. I didn't study English or history. I studied a social science because I loved looking at language as a tool and as a currency especially in ultra contacts and in the voice industry but actually with my company of flow we started with chat bots. Language is very much currency of conversational user. Interfaces or curious as we call them and so you know voice and chat go hand in hand they are. Interbay says that requires specificity precision and entertaining use of language but the design principles across voice and chat. Can you really different? And so- entering Voice Technology. You know it's kind of a misnomer. I didn't enter voice technology. I entered chat and that was because when we started flow. Mico Gandara South Miller was actually the driving force behind beginning not company and he was noticing automation taking he was noticing the role of AI in businesses in communications and he started to build the baht of an NBA all star name Russell Westbrook at the time of Oklahoma City Thunder and that was our first bought and then we started to build from there realizing that we scale communications we could even skill personas and brand identities into these conversational experience and so while we believed that automation and I were powering communication. We also believe that is really immature. I don't know if you hear this often but do people ever talk to you about kind of how I is lacking yes. That's definitely something that comes up and I know especially when it came out a couple years ago and consumers used it. There was kind of frustration and so I feel like there's now this like element of education and awareness of like. No it's growing and and we're working on it and getting people to understand that totally. Yeah I mean in technology. You hear a lot about the hype cycle rate. So we might be in that trough of disillusionment which is a piece of language. I just love it's kind of various the trump disillusionment makes sense. Alexa is a teenager. You know came out. In two thousand four chat bots really the dawn of chat bots was in the mid twenty tonnes. We are looking at technologies. That are not just immature in some time. They're immature in the sense of the amount of work that has to go into making them seem less so this industry needs our help. Our words and our design for it to actually work. It's not intelligent yet right so if a is a teenager you know. Teenagers can crash your car. Teenagers can make a lot of mistakes and do a lot of damage especially on the part of brands but teenagers can also change the world so just look at Greta. Van Ver look at the kinds of young people who are driving social change today. That's the approach that we take to chat and voice it'll flow and match. Why we built the concept of conversational design is because we believe that we have to work together with these systems and with the power moderation and conversation design is actually the most important part of Charlton boys today. If these systems are designed well technology to incredible but it's not going to work welter these her. Yeah which brings me to. You made a comment in another interview. You did how you talked about. Hamas boys conversations are linear and what you do out of flow as you really work on creating a circular conversational design. Can you describe the different? So people understand it and why it's important to what you do at a flow hersher. Yeah so out of what we developed. Circular Conversation Design as our attempts to fix these broken visual and verbal designs. Keeps the industry has kind of had to back dialogue into the tools that we have to build it. And so I think really voice and charter just like any industry were almost only as good as our tools and so what we do to kind of choose actualized or conversation design. We talk about a traffic circle. Have you ever been a England or actually you live in New Jersey? I was GonNa say we definitely have traffic circles in New Jersey? So yes perfect. Yes so we'll have talking to people who've been to New Jersey because you're intimately familiar with the roundabout traffic circle. You know you have to get on a certain point and then you make turtles people who aren't from UK or New Jersey. These very confusing carry. I've learned But the cool thing about around about or traffic circle as you can get on off any talk and so if you miss your exit you just keep going in the circle. You have another opportunity to make that exit once you exit you can drive through the backup but you always have an opportunity to get back on. And that's how human conversations work the tools of the trade up until now have kind of destroyed the potential conversations. I in my opinion because we've mainly used the decision tree right. So that's linear design thinking conversations as linear. But that's not how we speak. You know I could talk to you right now about projects for doing it a flow. We can pivot to women and boys. I could ask you what it's like to live in New Jersey. That's how communication works. There's so many circles within circles. There's so many overlaps in and crossed actions and so we had a great experience actually Boy Summit last summer we were really lucky to be part of Amazon's conversation design workshop. One got to take some great echo. Show fives and They disqualified anyone who designed using a decision tree. And so that kind of shows you the way that the industry has been. I know a lot of designer still used decision trees. And it's because it's how away to understand the computer logic but we don't conversational napster and we think of them as a set of nodes that are all linked to one another wherever and whenever possible in a circular fashion and just like that traffics. Are you have to be able to get on and get off at any point? In time we should be able to return to the part of the flow to the extent that the platform we build allows us to do so we should be able to return to order the flow midway through at via

"To text up. I'm your host John. Strict limit executive producer with iheartradio at a level attack. You know what guys. There was a time where I was absolutely enthralled with pirates but those reports on the high seas when I was in college there was a totally different type of piracy that was running rampant across the networks and that was the theft of intellectual property. So today we're taking a classic look at how Napster worked now. This episode originally published on April Third. Two thousand thirteen. So let's listen to this classic episode of Tech Stuff Napster and Napster's It's got a bad rap. It it it's kind of become synonymous with. At least the old napster. The original napster synonymous with things like piracy although the lawless days of the Internet just stole from Lars Alrich just in fact he. He ended up delivering a lawsuit by hand to still full gear. He was took this. I think sixty thousand pages. I don't know I don't know the I don't know that even a a a number of Metallica can carry a sixty thousand page by hand truck. I'm not sure I'm not sure by hand but share maybe on CD series of CDs. Yeah so anyway. Let's talk about what it was and what it is today because it's it's definitely changed quite a bit so it's a it's it's all about really all about music it's technically about file sharing but those files are were essentially music files. Mp three files and Napster Limited itself to MP three piles lots of other peer to peer sharing. That works used you. Could you could get movies all kinds of stuff games everything any kind of file napster was all about MP threes and and you have to understand like the the the days when we first start looking at this idea. That's way back in the late nineties back then. Music Was Not something that you could easily get on the Internet and was a first of all anything that was on. A webpage was mini based or whatever it was were MoD base. It was it was not anywhere close to CD quality. We didn't have an itunes store. That kind of thing yeah. There wasn't you know there were people who wanted I just say I completely I said that was founded. That's different show so anyway. There's a whole foods for a long time was just a jukebox type of program where you would manage the music that you already had. It wasn't a store where you would buy new music. It was it was a management system So really this time the way you would get if you were someone who wanted to get a music file. You would essentially have to search around for someone who was hosting music files on a website somewhere and download them and these. These websites were very much unreliable. And this is what got a certain guy thinking about different ways of going about it. The guy's name was shawn fanning. Yeah and as of Nineteen ninety-seven. He got his first computer very shortly after that Created NAPSTER. So that was yeah. It was within two years. He had gone from getting his first computer to creating one of the most influential and Torius web services and programs of all time. He got his computer from his uncle. John Fanning who ended up being. Oh Yeah Yeah. He provided the seed money for for Napster and a couple years. He was also not just interested in programming. Right off the bat but also interested in internet relay chat. I are searcy. Which is you know one of many different protocols that allow you to communicate over the Internet and an instant instant method. Yes yeah exactly. As opposed to like email or something along those lines and he got interested in the field of Internet security and He described himself at the time as a white hat. Not a hacker. So the idea being that he was interested in finding ways to make Internet. Security more robust. So you were in helping people not stealing from people right like not like he might look at a system and say oh you have a vulnerability here you need to patch it as opposed to. Oh you have owner ability here. Give me all your things. That was kind of his his. At least that's what he said and I I I have no reason to doubt him But he met virtually a fellow named Sean Parker Online. In those days and Sean Parker also becomes important in the Napster story so in ninety eight he was starting to think about this thing that Music files and by the way. This kid is a teenager. I'm Jacky if I'm using the word kid because I use that word for everybody because he was literally like seventeen to nineteen at the time. Yeah he was in one thousand. Nine hundred. Eighty was Well those when he was eighteen turning nineteen and he he was a freshman at northeastern university in Boston and he knew that there were a lot of kids his age really interested in music and they really wanted to find more music but again it really tricky to find it online because these websites that would host files they wouldn't last very long maybe someone stops stops monitoring it or maintaining it and the links are all dead or because of high traffic. You know everyone finds out that this is where this one file is. Everyone goes there and then it crashes the site it was really really tricky to find a way to reliably get those music files also important to note in one thousand ninety eight that was when the Digital Millennium Copyright Act went into effect. Yes very important that's congress enacted that and that was that was essentially Congress's way of saying we understand that intellectual property is important copyright is important and that the Internet age has dramatically changed. How easy it is to distribute material that is under copyright. So here are some rules to guide how we can How we can legislate this. Sorta stuff essentially criminalised the circumvention of any kind of digital rights management right and it also however created something called safe harbor which was very important. We've become extremely napster's case. Safe Harbor is a concept whereby it says if your site or service is not actively engaged in copyright infringement but the users are using your service in order to conduct copyright infringement you yourself are not at fault you cannot be held at fault for the behavior of your users because the users are behaving however they want to behave. You're providing a service as long as your service does not actively meant to circumvent copyright protection or to distribute copyright right materials illegally. Then you should be in the clear because you cannot be held responsible for what other people do and That's an important concept also won that ultimately you could argue was held up in the case of NAPA. Yeah Yeah Yeah other. While we're on the subject other concept that became important in this argument was the Audio Home Recording Act of nineteen ninety two. Which said that you are allowed to make unlimited copies essentially of any CDs and cassettes the own for personal use and for your friends as long as you're not receiving compensation right so again the idea being that if I own something I can make a copy of it. Usually it's considered a copy for backup purposes so for example. Let's say I own a CD. And I want to be able to make second CD in case something happens that I won because I mean I bought. That CD is yours. Mine And this this is. This is something that the music industry was not so pleased about. I mean every industry whenever any sort of invention has come up that allows people to copy material someway for instance. Vcr's DVR's the various industries. Get very nervous about it. Because they're afraid that well for multiple reasons but one of the reasons is. They are afraid that that's going to impact sales means that you're going to end up distributing stuff and then you cut out the The person or entity that is in charge of distributing that and they paid to make this thing happen essentially in the going to lose money yeah. It's huge huge thing when VCR's came out in the in the early eighties. Not that I remember. But why are you looking at me Lauren? Only because of your coasters because you actually know that I remember when. Vcr's came smile on her face tells me the answer all. I need to know folks how I need to know anyway but yeah so so that. That's kind of the state of digital copyright nine hundred ninety eight so meanwhile sean fanning is saying maybe there's a better way of being able to find and get the music files that you really want. And he starts to come up with this idea where the idea would be to create a centralized server and that servers job would be to search for an index music files and and the way would work is that you would subscribe to the service You'd essentially register yourself as a user with the service and then as a registered user. You would get a folder that you would put on your hard drive and that folder would be sharable folder. Anything you put in that folder could be seen by this service. The server the the centralized server could see whatever you put in there now in the case of. Napster talking. Mp three files so if you put a few had MP three files already on your machine and you put them in this folder it would mean that those would be discoverable by that centralized server so someone else who registers with Well it wasn't called Napster yet but when they register win the service and they search for a particular music file and you happen to have that music file in your folder. You're a link to essentially your machine would pop up and the server would facilitate a connection between the person's searching and your computer so that the file transfer could complete so lauren. Let's let's use. We'll use ourselves as an example Lauren. Let's say that you've heard about this band called common rotation okay all right. Common rotation fronted by Adam Busch former Actor in the buff vampire slayer right. Yeah he was. Lauren was Warren Nerd of doom. So Lauren you've heard of common rotation and you're thinking I really WanNa hear this one song. I've heard about that. Come in rotation does. It's called sit down before I fall down but I I don't have access to a way of finding the song otherwise I go into napster. It turns out that I- Jonathan Happen to have that song and I have it in the share folder for Napster and when you do the search it points linked towards my direction toward my computer. Okay you hit the download button. My computer uploads the file and your computer downloads. The file a direct transfer between the two computers. The centralized server just access kind of a traffic monitor. Okay and the the cool thing about this is that when my file gets to you by default. It's going into your share folder. You can change the settings or you could have changed those things back in the day or your service doesn't exist anymore or you can pull it out of that chair. Fold right right But you you don't you don't have to share everything you get but if you did that would mean that. Now there's another instance of that file two locations so that if you if you have trouble accessing the first location or if Chin Peters out yeah or if I'm not even online if my computer is off you cannot connect pewter but if Lauren is on and she still has that file on her folder that means person number three could come and get the file from Lauren. So every time that someone used napster they were actually increasing. Its Utility. So the service got stronger. The more people used it and the more the the larger the numbers joined the more powerful. This service became right right and so it was early in one thousand nine thousand nine fanning was was developing this this program and coating everything along with Sean Parker I think he did sixty straight hours of coding without sleep. That sounds like one of those terrific Internet myths. Although with with energy drinks which were renewed the red bull is brand new and they were downing them in case they were they were but so they uploaded this. Beta to a website called download dot com and and it really big people were so excited about. It was a very quickly became. Clear that this this thing that they had come up with joint really resonated really because there are a lot of people who are really interested in music and there's also the there was also this growing attitude of if I like one song but I don't like the rest of the album. Why should I album for one song and the problem at that time was that there was no real way to buy song by song unless the band had released specifically a single? Cd Cassette right other than that. You pretty much luck. You had to buy the entire album. And so that was why a lot of people are turning one of the reasons why a lot of people were turning to piracy because it allowed them the freedom to get what they wanted without getting all the other stuff and one of the big arguments people have put forward about..

Record labels rush to IPO amid music streaming boom

"Last year was the year of the Unicorn. Ipo parade this year. Not so much where mostly just waiting to see what AIRBNB is going to do but there is going to be a bunch of new. Ipo's coming soon from a very specific space. A lot of the record labels are planning to go public warner music. Group filed to go public two weeks ago. Universal Music Group is planning to IPO in the coming years. It said in Vivendi earnings report last week. And there's all sorts of investment and acquisition and merger chatter across the whole industry. Why well suddenly thanks to music streaming? The music industry is feeling flush and bullish. It's not that record. Labels are making as much money as they did in the golden olden days before napster. It's just that the bleeding has stopped and the industry has turned around. The labels have seen double digit revenue growth for each of the last few years basically revenue is growing. The charts are all moving in the right direction. Finally things are going up not down. So people are rushing to cash in and the record companies also seemed to have gotten with the Times quoting axios. The record companies have transformed themselves into music entertainment companies that provide services to all artists at any stage of their career and regardless of whether they are signed to that label says Mitch Glazer Chairman and CEO of the recording industry of America in a phone interview with axios quote that kind of diversification expands. Revenue options creates more opportunity in the industry and creates more competition says Glazer Glazer notes that the record labels today provide everything from social media strategy to merchandising for artists not just distribution deals. Miller notes that in the digital era and not every artist will rely on a label for distribution quote labels are much more willing and in fact must meet the artists where they are and quote paid. Subscriptions are now eighty percent of streaming music revenue which is up from just twenty five percent only five years ago so people are finally paying for. Music again. No wonder the industry is feeling its oats. Still there could be a natural sealing to all of this people don't seem to be willing to pay anything more than about ten dollars a month for music. Subscriptions and unlike in the video space you cannot entice people with exclusive content because of people are paying for music they want all the music not just a subsection of it so once everyone signs up for streaming this all hit a brick wall quote. I think that's why these companies want to go public now. I think there's some growth limits to this model says Miller end quote

Decentralization Philosophy Part 1 From Buddha to the Conquistadors

"I've been trying to figure out how to talk about this topic for a while because cryptocurrency is this really kind of strange flat structure. That has all of these little hierarchical structures built on top of it and you can take that analogy and you can really really zoom in on it or you can really really zoom out on it as kind of still true really regardless of how you're looking at it and I think a lot of this has to do with just the nature and sort of the oddness oddness of crypto currency and a Bitcoin as a community right as a movement and as technology that also is attached to people getting rich. Sometimes today I WanNa talk about a topic that I've been calling catalysts and CEOS and take a look at what the crypto currency space looks like. Today what it looked like in the past. Ask Talk about some of the different attributes that got us to where we are today. So Toshi said an interesting precedent. They led with their ideas and to a lesser extent their code and the early sparked a was association that contribution catalyzed first Bitcoin and then the crypto currency movement at large those who believed in that vision given an opportunity to get rich in some cases crazy rich rich and that combination of factors lead. I all coins coins than ICO's SAFT'S STO's and I don't think even talked about on the show before and who knows what will come next because clearly the path of innovation that's occurring here is not over at all but it also created what feels like a strange legacy that we're going to explore today as simply put are charismatic leaders who emerge from that flat structure that is the bitcoin protocol more or less dangerous more or less problematic more or less notable than the mark Zuckerberg's the Elon Musk's Jeff bezos. Goes and Steve. Jobs who really lead their movements. There's not that much of a difference between Associate Akimoto and a Jeff bezos except for the way that they fundamentally went about not inciting the change that now has kind of swept the world in one case kind of the e commerce site of and the other case this digital currency cryptocurrency or blockchain bitcoin movement. Or whatever you WANNA call it. Today's conversation is about decentralized catalysts and centralize CEO's the first thing I thought of when you said SA- Toshi contrasted to Jeff bezos. US was the difference. Between a certain personality type blended with introversion versus extroversion an extroverted rated person who is very smart and capable and intelligent and can see the future almost but wants credit and wants to be the face of an organization and is is comfortable in that role. You end up with someone. Like Jeff bezos. WHO's out there? And he's totally comfortable with that even though he retracts heat sometimes but but she didn't want the credit souto she wants to be behind the scenes and gets everything they needed from just being the mastermind. Mind who's kind of silent and letting other people be the face and I think that's really interesting. If you study personality types. Maybe even like the Myers Briggs. Souto Souto she is like your classic. I N T J personality type. They're like the mastermind architect but they don't need the credit and they don't need to be the face. Jeff Bezos as US would be like an E. N. T. J. who's like the CEO and the leader and wants to be the public face. I think that's a really interesting point. But I think that there's another factor here. Maybe okay which is that. Was it a choice. For Satoshi to take the type of catalyst like behind the scenes never revealed role or was that a factor of the not just the disruptive potential but what was being disruptive of course it was a choice. I mean Saito. She clearly thought through the implications of what they were doing carefully but if they really wanted credit they would have justified some way to take the credit and to be public about it. I think you always have a choice. I think another pretty good way to differentiate so Toshi from Jeff bezos is one of them make several hundred million a year contracting with the CIA Eh and the other one was never heard from one someone spoke to the CIA. I don't know who's point that supports but I think the big different factors that there was a legal path for Jeff Bezos to do what he did and even if he was an introvert. It still a good choice for him to do it. If it winds up that he has all the resources and success. I don't think we see that in practice very often where you have a founder. Who Comes in catalyze is a thing and then leaves before it actually becomes successful and their contribution bution isn't largely replaced by what comes after? I don't think it's so cut and dried that. What Jeff Bezos was doing or wanted to do with there was a legal path for him him? I mean he was doing something that nobody had ever done before. What was that avoiding state sales tax? This is another good point. Jeff bezos has been really interested in Star Trek. He wants to create a star trek future and some of the things he's been doing are totally unprecedented. And so it's not as though you can really say. Oh they're definitely legal because there's never been a legal precedent to establish that they are legal. You could say oh well Ijaz doing things that are a gray area or questionable. But he's he's not asking for permission and that's an admirable quality so you're talking about different levels of challenge and so with Jeff Bezos thing and with examples like like Uber. And other things like that. You are talking about companies that are doing very disruptive things but the question is who are they disrupting and in both of those situations the person or the entity. That's it's being disrupted their state governments and so if you're like a national company and you have presence in many many states that actually gives you the ability to play a bit of a game there. The thing that Uber did is kind of the reverse of what happened with napster. Napster was a decentralized network for file sharing then hit a bunch of national and even global organizations that suited everywhere but it was ultimately fighting these national or global organizations whereas Uber. They weren't fighting any global or national organizations they were fighting lots and lots and lots of little regional monopolies and it's to a lesser extent. Sure about Amazon to every state where they weren't collecting sales tax. Well that was an individual a fight so it's not like they had a problem with the United States. They had a problem with each individual state. Look at what's happened with projects in the lead up to the invention of Bitcoin and all of those centralized charlize alternatives. They were competing with the federal government for fundamentally monopolized right in the right to issue currency and control sort of the dynamics of the money that we all use news. And that's a place where it seems like you couldn't have done this as a CEO because people tried that and they basically all wound up getting arrested or getting all their assets season in many cases giving customers assets assets seized two so as we can see. There are definitely reasons why people do decentralized and centralized organizations whether it's from personal reasons just because they don't want the credit in some cases or in some cases because having the credit is dangerous and on the other hand the advantages of taking on that leadership role. Well the thing about a flat structure is that it's a flat unstructured. So even if you're on top of it still major basically at the same level as everybody else but organizations you know. Companies these are hierarchies for the most part and so if you have that role at the top of that structure well. It's a lot higher than you'd be if you were at the top of a flat structure. All of this comes back to one of my favorite books. It's really short and highly recommended. Did starfish and the spider by Rod Beckstrom Ori Brachman. I read it actually before I became interested in Bitcoin and it was really kind of formation book for me. We've talked about on the show before but it's been like five five years so I figured it wasn't a bad topic to bring up again. The subtitle of the book is the unstoppable power of leaderless organizations. And if you're a fan of decentralized technologies but I've never read it I cannot recommended amended highly enough quoting from the book. A spider is a creature with eight legs coming out of its central body. It has this tiny head and usually eight is. If you chop off the spider's headed headed dies and that's exactly what happens with centralized organization a centralized organization has a clear leader. WHO's in charge? And there's a specific place where decisions are made if you get rid of the leader. You paralyzed realized the organization now. This contrasts with a decentralized organization. which is a fundamentally different animal? It's actually a starfish. At first glance at starfish looked similar to a spider appearance but the starfish is decentralized. starfish doesn't have ahead. The major organs are actually replicated through each and every arm and in reality. starfish is a neural network work. Basically a network of cells instead of having a head like a spider the starfish functions as decentralized network and you can even in nature see situations where a starfish fish has been wounded and for example in arm or even several arms have come off what tends to happen is that actually both pieces will then grow into a complete starfish and it's another another method that they can reproduce. You might say that that's inefficient from a biological perspective to duplicate or pent-up locate editor. How you even and say that word but to make five copies of all of your major orders and neural tissue? GAFFER's them this great advantage of being able to regenerate just from from a small piece it means that while starfish might not have perhaps some of the advantages that a spider does it also isn't vulnerable in the same way. That spider is to damage to you. Know very small parts of it because again it's just not centralized we're GonNa talk about this concept in a different way a little bit later. But what other comparisons do you like besides this kind of starfish in spider for decentralized and centralized organizations and kind of broader question that I wanna come to his how many companies do we actually think or how many any projects do we actually think like rough. ballpark percentage in crypto actually are starfish versus. How many might be using a network that is a starfish but in reality the are themselves

Fired Up!

"But increasingly read comment while ago posted about the sustainable futures report. The correspondent was concerned that i was trying into politics. The truth is everything is political while we can all do something toward solving the climate crisis. It is only governments and politicians who can make the changes of the magnitude that will make a difference. We are talking about system change after all. I know that many of you listening thing to the sustainable futures report are not in the u._k. I think that even you would have noticed that you k- politics are in some turmoil at the moment in fact this has been going on for three years but it's finally approaching day new mall. I say finally but everything may well have changed by the time you hear this anyway. They situation is the new prime minister has sought and received the authority of the queen to prorogue or suspend parliament of course she couldn't refuse but that's another story. The point at issue is that this would allow the prime minister to govern without parliament and allow how him to complete brexit the u._k.'s departure from the e._u. As he chooses i happen to believe that leaving the ear would be a disaster. Komo concerned if this prime minister can sideline parliament than any prime minister can do it on any issue. That's the reason i spent tuesday in london with your for europe and the yorker remain voice clap. I hope you saw us and hurt us on the evening news on bbc you see i tv and channel. Brexit is a sideshow by comparison with the climate crisis while breaks. It dominates u._k. Politics antics little of significance will be done on climate change all on many other issues that we've been neglecting over the last three years worrying agreeing also is the fact that many permanent brexit tears pacifica's climate deniers if i'm being political in opposing them and so be it in the climate crisis news this week the amazon fires why they're not the only fires why they he may not be as bad as you think a why they may be much more serious in ways you don't expect the future of the consumer society professor ian boyd retiring chief scientific advisor defa has set out his thoughts which looked very much like system change to me and the flying prince. I'll all common offsets making his travel common neutral the fun as in the amazon have been making big news news over the last couple of weeks that destroying the rainforest sante threatening an area which produces twenty percent of the world's oxygen on the amazon amazon rainforest is the lungs of the earth. Isn't it well. Yes no i strongly recommend that you listen to more or less a statistics sticks programme on bbc radio four which is available online and has carried out a detailed analysis of the situation they spoke to daniel net stunt of the earth innovation institute who explained that the fire houses have been identified by satellites are not burning rainforest generally the rainforest doesn't burn because it's so damp and humid what can happen is that low level fis can burn the leaf litter on the forest i flow and this can scorch the trunks of the trees and callum off these files are not visible from space and their effects are only evident once the trees have died off which may take a euro reversed point then is that the fires may be more extensive than we know at present. The fires that we can see from space are carrying on land which is being cleared. It's common practice for farmers to burn off weeds. Where land has been recently cleared. The trees are left to dry out and then abundant. One of the major consequences of these files is smoke soot in the atmosphere leading millions of people to seek treatment for respiratory diseases smoke from the falls code sao paulo which is mulling one thousand miles away from the amazon to be plunged into an apocalyptic darkness in the nineteenth of august the new president of brazil k. A. bowl sonata has taken a very hard line on the amazon weakening the brazilian environment ministry and turning a blind eye to illegal logging and deforestation he the amazon as a resource to be exploited by minus farmers and loggers as reported recently when the brazilian satellite satellite monitoring agency revealed significant increases in the rate of deforestation. The president denied that it was true on the director of the agency was dismissed. Does the amazon produce twenty percent of the world oxygen. It depends how you calculate but according to daniel napster it consumes a lot as as well and the net effect is more or less neutral. He sees the most important function of the forest as cooling effect as every every drop of water transpired by the trees evaporates. It cools the atmosphere you the effect of this across the whole forest is enough to have an effect on the climate of the whole world. Let's not forget the consequences of the fires and the deforestation policies for the indigenous peoples of the amazon amazon basin. They see the homes that food sources their way of life destroyed tribes that have been wolf generations a coming together against a common enemy enemy. Surely the global community should take that pont in our own interest as well as this president bolsonaro initially initially suggested the ngos had deliberately set the forest on fire in order to embarrass the government rejected the twenty two million dollars that politicians titians attending the reason g seven summit in biarritz pledged to help fight the fis. Can the world afford to stand by and let this destruction attraction continue. It's claimed that attention to the amazon leads the world over the fact that there are far more fis in africa but it's not the same thing writing in courts africa kolin bill senior lecturer in ecology university of york says fire is an essential part of the savannah savannah. The first to know is that the impact of a wildfire depends more on wet and what it is burning than how big it is or indeed how many fines there are the vast majority of the african fires currently earning seemed to be in grasslands and exactly the places we expect to see fires of this time of these files are usually by cattle famous as part of their traditional management of the savannahs where the animals graze some files are started to to stimulate new growth of nutritious cross for their animals others are used to control the numbers of parasitic takes own manage the growth of thorny we scrub without fuzz many savannahs and the animals they support wouldn't exist and lighting them as a key management activity in many any of the iconic protected areas of africa for instance.

Being Multiplatform Is the Only Way to Stay Alive With Fader's Andy Cohn

"Welcome to the digital podcasts and brian morrissey this week. I'm joined by andy kern andy as president and publisher of the feeder which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary serie any welcome. Thank you for having me brian. It's great to be here okay so twenty years. You're not a failure at the time though you were at spend competitor right. Yes i was at spin and then i was at the source magazine yeah right around the time. Is this a different era for magazines right. It sure was so lots changed since then but the fighter has continued right and still magazine bimonthly but now i would guess it is a multi-platform brand. Yes it is multi platform because that is the only way for us to you. Know stay alive okay. I think i got there. I've been there sixteen years now. <hes> and came up through the more traditional you know the time period of print magazines were revenue was essentially if not a hundred percent ninety percent an advertising supported through print advertising and then maybe some events here and there some newsstand sales for some of the stronger newsstand publications ends and that was really the beginning of the end of it <hes> from a revenue stream standpoint and it was a boom period <hes> especially in music because as you head spin and vibe and the source and brands really starting to embrace hip hop as marketing platform and vehicle so <hes> <unk> brands as big as you know general motors ford coke and pepsi it wasn't just the street where brands anymore that were starting to really embrace that culture and <hes> to leverage you know the those that genre of music for marketing advertising so <hes> i think for those publications and what ended up happening is they became so heavily driven by circulation and celebrity and who was on the cover and had to just be as big possible artists as you can imagine the other you know jay z on the cover of the source or your radiohead and coldplay on the covers of rolling stone and the fader and <hes> the bigger the circulation got the more you can charge for advertising pages so zaveri simple business model you know at the time which <hes> changed as we all saw <hes> you know especially <hes> brown two thousand eight so it was two thousand eight the big inflection point yeah i. I think it's interesting because coming over to fater <hes> i came over in two thousand three at the time it was a quarterly publication which is what we're actually back to now <hes> and they the guys that started it were from the music industry so they started fater more out of access to music because they were doing a lot of non traditional early early day street team digital marketing for record labels for specific releases so they would have the first outkast album before it would be serviced to survive vibe or a rolling stone or is it then they didn't have print or journalism or magazine experience but they had this access and felt like they needed the document cemented so that's how feeder started <hes> was based on this early access so started as an emerging music magazine where it was artists that you weren't really that familiar with yet which called plan cover no coal plan the cover at the time it could have been at some point at some point so what what was interesting to me because i was a journalism major in college i grew up with my father was a newspaper editor at newsday and a writer you know for forty six years and i was obsessed with <hes> you know just music journalism and when i came out of college i got a job at spin on the business side of the magazine and you know it was. Was it like you said before. It was a very different time is very circulation driven. The whole business model was based on selling ads growing your circulation and your rape base so for me what happened was is because of that. I was at points in time at both of those publications where they were either sold <hes> quincy jones and and the people <hes> bob miller bought spin and brought it into the family with vibe and the source hit such a big mass kind of mainstream removed that you know to go up from there is hard and you have to really do things that weren't in your dna and your original mission statement so what happened was isley. Spin spin is an example is where it was the quote unquote alternative to rolling stone. They were putting artists like p._j. Harvey and tori amos and you know rage against the machine on the covers when rolling stone was now starting to put david letterman and buffy the vampire slayer as they were trying to become so big and more of like and entertainment weekly than an actual music and cutting edge lifestyle magazine which was in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and for its earlier years so i think the example is when spin got sold. They started putting a lot of pressure to grow the circulation because it wasn't an independent privately held company any longer by bob optus tony junior who is a big music fan and believe in you know promoting these kind of upcoming artists they started putting kid rock and creed and natalie attlee imbruglia and really experimenting with very mainstream things that never fit or seem to fit with the original mission statement was for spin <hes> so you know you can call it selling out but i think what it did was alienated. The core audience of those music publications that came there for something in the first place and then those magazines evolved because of the business pressures so you know put became much less of a challenge much more predictable like you knew jay z. He had an album coming out he'd be on the cover of the source you know so that's like and then in ninety nine ninety eight you started hearing things like lime wire napster during the internet and all of a sudden those long lead publications couldn't really compete with the discovery nature of music anymore so they by the time these the longley publications came out everyone already listened to anne knew about a new of everything that was going on through the internet so you know when i was growing up as an older person had to go into record stores to find you know different genres of music and it was very intimidating. If you hurt someone talk about dancehall you're like dance all for for that now. Dancehall type it in two seconds and you're listening to dancehall like through napster and lime the accessibility to music and all of these genres were so far reaching now that it usurped. I think the purpose of the longer lead you know print titles so when fader first came out was really interesting and caught my eye was that the first issue i saw was the third issue had had most f- on one side and back with the angelo together on the other side and and i didn't really know of who those people were and i thought it was really interesting so i think that around ninety nine when fader started hit this inflection point where the kids were now growing up with accessibility to every genre of music there was not like spin the alternative music magazine ad source and x._l. The hip hop magazines you you know it was here's something that's really reflecting of. What's kind of going forward you know and in multiple genres of music like someone even myself i was i call myself from the walk this way generation which is seeing you know the convergence of rap crossing over into the the mainstream and i think you know starting to really get into music in nineteen eighty six in one thousand nine hundred seven all that just became like second nature to when i was listening to led zeppelin classic rock or public enemy and rock him and you know the fat boys and the beastie boys and run dmc. It was all l. cool to me. It didn't matter it wasn't segmented so i think when failure came out it kind of like captured this moment in time that was really well well timed <hes> because it was speaking to people that had that accessible so it had some kind of advantage over some of its bigger competitors that had gone very broad. Yeah i think what fader was at that. Moment was what was kind of a combination of the best of all of those other publications from when they first started and with what their original missions were when you look at spin starting in nineteen eighty five and rolling stone starting in nineteen sixty eight they were counterculture. They were edgy. Spin was writing and hiv aids column which it was crazy at the time you know very alternative rolling stone. Had you know a crazy investigative journalism pieces and p._j. O'rourke and all those hunter thompson awesome you know the things that they were doing so i think it just you know fader came out with this like fresh voice that was speaking like a and not to sound cliche but he was speaking to this new new generation of really hardcore music fans but the same kind of secular pressures i guess as they call them in the business world you know were exempted right. I mean in two thousand and two thousand nine <hes> if particularly if it's print advertising driven <hes> music industry's gone through a lot of changes <hes> explain that inflection point and sort of how the business needed to pivot because a lot of a lot of competitors didn't really make it as they were or made it in in shrunk informs ripe right. I think being that failures mission was to cover kind of what's next in music and knowing that we weren't going to be able to rely on celebrity for any kind of real scale or mass reach. I think early on <hes> we were very <hes> very interested in doing events and like not only just putting an artist that you've never heard ever seen before on the cover of national magazine but also like doing events bringing those artists out to perform live and finding ending ways obviously early days internet to continue the conversation online so it wasn't just like you were an emerging print magazine and then had to move onto the next issue you talk about a whole new host of people you're able to like start building the brand in other ways and be a little bit more diverse so i think because we did events early on and it gave us a like a real strategic advantage in that everyone then started to do events and i think we had an expertise and ability ability to do events that became a huge ultimately a huge revenue stream for was his fader fort back fater four was just eighteen years gold <hes> and i think that's become you know it's become a one plot digital platform for us like almost like a second brand go to to the fader <hes> but in two thousand eight when print advertising was decimated we were able to kind of lean lean more on these events and really lean on the fact that the events gave us a little bit more of like a multidimensional approach because we couldn't we wouldn't wooden of survived if it was just the print advertising or just going online or going online because there was display advertising even at that point in time was <music> very you know <hes> is very <hes>. It was unknown territory. The dollars were like pennies on the dollar versus what that the meaningful meaningful print advertising before collapsed was you know so like from a c._p._m. Standpoint from a total gross revenue standpoint it didn't it's not like one. Just filled filled the gap on the other side so for us. I i do point to the fact that we did tons of events and were able to really like you know you get brands involved on a multiplatform level <hes> so i guess like ten years ago or so probably ninety percent print right y- yeah yeah so what is it today. <hes> percentage wise print is probably i would say in like the twenty to thirty percent of the total revenue pie. <hes> experiential is probably the biggest experiential in video because through video. It's that means not only only us creating our own proprietary fater video but we also do a ton of white label video content for big brands so that come to us for ours boris that iq our ability to understand how to work with artists so companies land access to the art and i think that's the the real like magical thing about failure of over the years i think when you strip everything away is the artist access that we have because we have double down on these artists so early on in their career when no one else is giving them that type of platform yet that we've been able to establish these you know great long running relationships with both those artists and their management and not not have to go through agents or middle middleman like give an example of that an artist the the stuck with for i mean they were smaller. I guess when you started working <hes> i mean artists like i think drake is a great example <hes> just because of how he is and how big it's gotten he did make it. I think it started at the bottom apparently <hes> no but drake used to come up to our office and plus music and he was a great guy and very humble <hes> and you know he almost kind of sold us on you know <hes> on his his skills and we started we did a blog post you know of one of his early songs and it did really well and then <hes> and we put him on the cover in two thousand nine. It was his first. I ever magazine cover. We went up to toronto. You went to the nursing home with him to see his grandmother mother. We spend time at his house. <hes> and we just did like a lot that i think no one had done with him at that point because he wasn't really anyone yet and i think that's what our dna really is is like kind of curated and identifying people that we believe in their music and their longevity of

"Get you're saying welcome to football season it's the third week of July for crying out loud the Napster for games out in playing very well it's it's hard to shift your gears but it's red skins well I'm sure here so I guess you know the great thing about training camp is you lose sight of everything because you're with the players from six AM to eleven PM yeah and we are we're inundating them with football football football understandable and then not not running with the bulls or anything like that no we had a talk did you have a conversation with Mister Norman about you know I wasn't a fan of you dancing you know with the debt limit stars yet but I have you dance with the women that dance with the book yeah I think it probably a good choice hi this is your fourth year now in Richmond for our six year is six I'm so sorry for under and and what it turned out it was today I we're on break right now but the fans will be coming back relationship still strong with the city here it's it's strong with the city with you know Richmond is really one of the big NFL markets there in the top ten in television ratings while for every Monday night game the Super Bowl the draft so there's a lot of foot NFL fans here and obviously this is rights can country can you know the time pretty well could you at the governor just won't come on my show I don't I'm not sure why he's been in the news a lot lately could you could you give me a hook up there we've we've heard from the office and we're expecting him to come to practice either Friday maybe this weekend so give me a heads up on that I'll swing by for fat all right let I got to talk about the Redskins in the season ahead of us who's your starting quarterback Jeez I was wondering if you'd asked me that question that hasn't been determined yet the Philly is anybody's job yeah that would Jay's been doing as you saw in the first practice is each player's a cold case and Wayne are all getting equal amount of wraps and they're working with the first in the second and the third groups and we're not going to worry about that for a while now I know why shouldn't loves a quarterback controversy as much as independent counsels yeah right now we're going to let him continue to work and continue to grow and and of course it was talking about do what's happening with your left guard right now the the offensive line seems a little a little different without without are at the heart of the team without Trent there what's what's happening there you have news on that old out no news on it he's not here we love them but he's not here and is everybody talking I mean either you having conversations at least to work through this yeah it's really Trent tranice explained his position to me and we'll see what happens but right now we have to focus on the guys were here well if it listed as we had a great time last season obviously it was an incredible start you superseded everybody's expectations of the B. first half of the year and then these injuries com and it does ask question in that it's got to kill you obviously when you see these injuries in these guys are a part of your family and and you get to know them so much what is it about the red skins it seems is it is it the turf is it the the the program that you've got for strength and conditioning I mean I've seen your facilities there their top of the line you know Larry we we brought in some independent people to try and analyze the different injuries and after spending about eight weeks of our time and their time they came back with the you know there's no correlation is just the fleet demand yeah you know if it was just pulled muscles are growing sin and things soft tissue type of things then it would be the training regimen but we broke some bones we separated some shoulders we pulled some calf muscles we pulled we did it we did a mall you got everything that we share it was hopefully goes in the cycle and and it and it all happened the cowboys I don't wish injuries on any but I do but not us our receipt with Bruce Allen president of the red skins here on day one of training camp that between now that Lester yeah the jets here and they they were thugs right they were day beaten up on our players and our fans what team comes in at the end of this season will be the bangles because that's the first preseason game it didn't work out with the bangles okay so we're we're not gonna have any team come to Richmond we're just we're gonna work is our our own units and then get ready to play the Bengals ran by the way you this goes through what August fourteenth I want to say off the top of my head I believe a right right in there if you guys want to come down here for a beautiful long weekend or just take a couple of days off Richmond is incredibly hospitable and it's a really cool atmosphere don't cost anything to come in the gate no it caught the cost nothing I I do know someone bought a beer a Budweiser very early this morning that that was that I just bought that for the picture I can actually drink the beer I'm workin Bros an hour but it's not it's not get me in trouble or allies I have more questions if you'd like me to ask the group if we're trying to get each other in trouble well no we appreciate the business thank you for let's let's talk about what your expectations are for this season I know on the first day of training camp everybody thinks that we got a chance at the Superbowl instructing the parity in the NFL is incredible but the if you read the press accounts you guys don't have a chance to make it past the first week it all and that's a good thing that's motivating right yeah it's it's it's our players understand that expectations with you don't national outlets is in great for us the the cowboys in the eagles on the eagles have been a very good team that won the Superbowl couple years ago but we can make our own history and that's that is the message here and if you see the shirts that the players are wearing they say everything matters and so we're gonna try and get the details down here in Richmond and trying to get ready for opening gaming and win again when I was talking to the fans here during the the first half of the day for the first practice they were all raving about the draft and do something about this draft in particular that has given so much hope and excitement to the fans odd that talk about your draft talk about the strategy that you have there and who you really look I mean obviously you want all of them to to start eventually but who are you really looking after this season from at twelve each day is very important for the young players and and any new player that comes in to to the red skins or any team because I got to learn the new terminology the new systems and learn their new teammates and what they can count on from their teammates so the young players it's very important for him they're working really hard and we are excited about a week we see great things for them here's where those so you you want to make it a starting quarterback right now is pretty much up for grabs a everybody yes several out of that out of the next ten minutes there goes that that career option starting running back kind of the same situation right even Adrian Peterson obviously coming back but he's not necessarily in you know every down kind of running back right we use a group runny back system for a number of years eight Adrian obviously looks beautiful and is the best body out here him in Vernon Davis it's a tie between who the best body is in any way once again you're not station but Chris Thompson's been such a valuable asset for us on third down and out of the backfield but getting various guys back yeah watching the compile competition for them I was injured right around this time like third day of training camp last one of the first preseason game against overstressed hatred and that and and awful awful but having various guys back and he's he's healthy hundred resign and he's he's healthy knock on wood please not cancel that service thank all right so no conversation with you is complete we're gonna have plenty conversations I understand we're gonna we're gonna you're gonna be a regular here on the program over the course of the year so what's going on with the stadium the stage where we gonna be where we gonna be we do not have that announcement yet you'll you'll get to hear when we do expect to make an announcement about a new stadium new home for the Redskins sometime this year I would say within a year of that if that is the time table we're looking at our deadline for making the decision is really twenty twenty two because our lease and in Maryland and sin and twenty twenty six and so yeah but they don't build around here like they do in Vegas like that they they made the that stadium for the raiders was built in like three months out there I it's going to take a longer to building here well there's history in this city for when they're motivated they can do anything they want to do when I interviewed the president and he said he'd like to come to a red skins game what was the reaction in the front office there an aspirin when you were when you were here and that we look at that residence we have we have pictures of red skin park of the presidents of come over the years and it's it's it's it's part of the greatness of this franchise legacy is we're in the nation's capital and we think that's remains as a present wants to go to a game the president redskin says you'd love to have him at the game so I got to be the mediator I got to work this out I get get everybody in the same room and a negotiated down your your on board for this yeah but I thought you had the secretary of state coming to the game no no I left him down and when is that our Bruce down as a present right you want the president to come to the game alright we got a lot of Redskins fans here want that T.

W. you're on the worldwide web then there's the deep web and the dark web is not the deep web the deep web is any part of the internet that is it discover a bull by search engine I think that's the best way to say it yeah so for example you're on your banking site and you log in if you've navigated to a specific location on line that particular place online that is your account is not served up in Google results you go to your health care provider and you want to see the results of your last lab test that's not going to show up on on a Google search or whatever surgeons you're using so that is the deep web so we got the worldwide web the deep web I hope I I hope I'm doing you know your yeah you're you're you're putting it in the picture together perfectly then you've got the dark who had been this is I mean these are the blackest of waters folks the dark net the dark web this this is the peer to peer network whereas with this is this is where you find the kind of market places that ply their trade in illicit wearers these are basically hidden crime bazaars they can only be accessed through special software that obscures one's true location on line it's real this is not how good it if the I would say Katie I'll get your take on this I would say the dark web's much much larger than the W. W. W. dot web well you know that there there's a picture that goes around it's like the tip of the iceberg as the W. W. W. realm and then it that giant piece that you can't see above water and that's the rest of the internet it's the dark web so the dark web if you're on the dark web if you're using a crypto currency to do business that's what you do it's not you know it's not the dollars and cents it's a crypto currency and because there's so much money to be made on the dark web both legitimate and illegitimate are using these crypto currencies the one you've heard of probably is bit coin bit coin what did you say one bit coin is worth now ninety five hundred Bucks so crypto currencies these are decentralized virtual currencies that run on peer to peer computer networks big coin the largest the most traded so the crypto currency is digital it's a digital for money there's no central bank there's no central repository the money flows in and out of the system through the use of users computers it went you know as I think about it remember Napster Napster's going back but this is Napster was unique because you could trade MP three songs and videos here it only lasted a few years late nineties early two thousands that's exactly how crypto currency works your currency transactions are verified using super high powered computer equipment and it's all done on the dark web now this is the shocking part is Katie and I've gone there didn't purchase anything we just looked around and it was one of the creepiest experiences that I've ever been a part of I mean we're right here in the studio name a place on the internet where you can purchase a hit man for crying out loud yeah this was not a joke now and and and HK forty sevens and heroin I mean you name it you can buy it there it's a whole the hit man thing was again you're thinking come on this is it this is a joke no it was this was for real it was for this is that the types of drugs that are easily found and purchased on the dark web all the purchaser needs is a cryptocurrency use the big corn you get an address to ship your drug of choice and of course you need the computer smart phone and once you find what you want you literally click and by and proceed to check out just like you're on Amazon it's just it it's wild the way that this it and it's so easy to access it's so easy once you I mean once you I mean you can look at a you tube video how to access the dark web and I'll take you through it so you've got you've got the drugs and you've got the sax and you've got they they hit man and what's what's amazing is with the drugs you can have these drugs discreetly shipped directly to your home the U. S. P. S. literally they're using the postal service for this yep you can get all the stuff guaranteed delivery within twenty four hours this is how Fenton all comes in and out of the country major driver of the current opioid crisis in America it's all happening via the dark web where they'll legal firearms come from yeah I'm sure the FBI you know they they're not dummies they're getting involved but again this is such a dark and creepy part of our our world four one five eight zero eight fifty six hundred I'd love to hear from you about this four one five eight zero eight fifty six hundred but police agencies you know there trying to get involved because well is it and and and the other thing that Steve Steve you must which was making with us earlier tax attorney not all crypto currency users are criminals I have to make that clear but there is a lot of crypto currency involved in various crimes and that's was just absolutely shocking so it's a part of our world that is gaining in popularity and it's a part of a world that stinks I mean it's just putrid

Where are musicians making money

"Ninety nine was a peak year for the music industry with sales reaching fourteen point six billion dollars in the US. And then, you know, the story Napster happened I tunes happened and the CD store died twenty years later. The music business is back to, quote one writer it's back like a zombie prime to devour the world on a massive scale because of streaming services, some projection show that music, revenue may soon surpass the benchmark set in the late nineties, here's pitchforks, senior, staff writer, Marc HOGAN, basically, your for years and years as has been widely publicized, the industry was doing really badly. But now has been finally growing again recently, thanks to the expected growth from a streaming. Goldman Sachs says forty one billion dollars annually by twenty thirty. Right. I mean, unless bear in mind that Leeman brothers in nineteen ninety nine also. Had these really rosy upbeat predictions for industry and the industry crashed and then leading others is now gone. So these, these predictions should all be taken with a grain of salt, but people seem to expect the industry to be healthy again. So that's the labels how Spotify doing Spotify. They keep growing. They have more and more users, they're expected to keep growing around the world, the revenues are pretty big, but they generally lose money. So Spotify struggling to turn all of these users into actual profits in your article, you do really great breakdown of where the revenue goes. So break it down for sure. Well, according to deutchebanks report, the earlier this year, for everyone hundred dollars consumer spending on CDs or vinyl of the labels profit is eight dollars for every one hundred dollars spent on down those on, I tunes, that's nine dollars. And for every one hundred dollars spent on streaming the labels profit is. Thirteen dollars. So the share that goes, the labels is actually bigger under your streaming than it was under the old physical formats, is that simply because of logistics cost of production. They don't have to make a thing cutting out the middleman. Yes, exactly, where's the rest of the money, go to well, I think, for musician it varies based on what they're deal is what I found the more people I talked with is just it really depends. And it's it's difficult to come up with a single simple number for what -sition gets now. Let's talk about musicians. How is this boom affecting, you know, the people who are actually, making the music the way, the boom, seems to be musicians is similar to what we're seeing across the economy, really where the upper echelon Hughes doing better and better, and the middle income, and lower income is issues are not doing this. Well, I talked to one you leibel head who said that the middle class for musicians has dried up. That's not really there anymore. What's the average musician making no days? Well, according to one survey, it was around. Around thirty five thousand dollars in two thousand seventeen but only about twenty one thousand three hundred dollars that came from activity related to music. So that's live gigs that streams merge live for the most common source of income. So these are professional musicians, who are not able to make a living doing music. Exactly. Yeah. I mean, that's kind of what we're seeing is getting harder and harder for the vast majority of people who actually make music to make living on the other hand, though. You've had some really interesting conversations with the indie rapper, Jay pick, Maffia what he tell you. Well, he's a very interesting guy all

And the kind of problems that you set out to solve a we'll put you on this path. Yeah. What's put me on this bath really is. And that goes way back to when I was a teenager and internet came into my life. So to say, right. The connection with the rest of the world, and all the creativity simply blew everything away in most positive sense of the word, and this was before Napster when there was no MP3. yet. You know, so but still this this new thing was was there. And then, of course, that evolve, and it was shaping our society more and more than a good way. But also in in ways, we we we don't really know how to cope with yet. I think and then off the social media came in mid and late two thousands. I came across a bitcoin and then. For me. Everything else was just kind of boring because all of a sudden, we we have this digital public infrastructure for a global payment network, and it is not owned by anyone, and it is absolutely independent and neutral, and this whole idea, I think we can take much further, and this is also whether it's basically at the core of what we're doing at other see, so that's that's basically how we came to it. Because what I was doing. When when when I came across bitcoin is both doing experiments with it like built all kinds of new chemical apps. Like, I was at a at a bitcoin conference one of the first ones in Europe organized by mode eleven I think it was in two thousand fourteen or so and then I couldn't pay my beers at the bar with bitcoin. And I was like what what is this? All right. So then we'd you Philip this point of sale system for for restaurants in boss where you could easily pay your base with with bitcoin. But we also. It was a time when when when Google gloss came out, and we connected to go glass to to a blockchain dot info wallet and Aucoin baseball, so then you could do hence free payments. So you could you could say okay glass. Make payments, and then scan QR code like RoboCop style, and then you could not wise, and it pays the actual Bill, and we had so much fun doing these things. But also we learned so much about how this. Bitcoin as an infrastructure system works. And it. It gave me the idea that you can actually discover the future by actually building. It's in a very good way. It takes you out of your comfort zone. It's not a fun. And I also have organized a couple of conferences, but it wasn't really satisfying enough for me because it's just talking. Right. So then I merged the two into this innovation program with the hacker Thon, and and turned it into a professional innovation and collaboration infrastructure. I'm so glad you mentioned you'll teenage years then the arrival lived in

"It used to be that people wanted to have curated content and Pandora's you're suggesting sort of follow that model. But if you look at Spotify or apple music, it's much more sort of rummaging around the place a bit more Napster ask maybe. Yeah. I think people want both. I mean, you know, Spotify has some Spotify curated playlist specifically there's one called wrap caviar hugely popular and listeners do want that curated experience. But I think they also want the ability to just go straight to Spotify and listened to the new low Wayne album, or whatever it is. I think they won both house the industry doing a whole. I mean, we've seen some interesting plays by people like for instance, we were talking about beyond say earlier, and she only makes her music available on title. And then you have Taylor swift who has gone back and forth when it comes to. Spotify. What difference does it make monetarily? For those artists makes a lot of difference to to answer the sort of macro question. I think what the record industry has tried and is trying to do is they were famously slow on downloading they famously fought it. I mean, that's what your whole show has been about with Napster, and they paid the price because downloading with here to stay and the record labels didn't accept it until it was too late. So I think with streaming which has basically supplanted downloading the labels and the record industry have tried to be more adaptive, and they've tried to get in on something close to the ground floor with streaming and to really sort of buy in to this whole new way that people listen to and I think it's working out well, in their view, the sort of various trade groups love to talk about how the record industry is after many years of contraction is expanding again and. Labels are making money. So I think the many people view the worst as being behind them. And now, it's a it's a point of time of growth and of trying to figure out how to maybe make more money where some is being made. But obviously, many would like to make more, you know, a have to throw this out is just a wild card because I didn't appreciate this until I actually was gifted a turntable and came to discover how much I actually enjoyed listening to vinyl. Of course, we're seeing a lot of record stores manage to stay open because of, you know, selling new and used vinyl is that a is that a novelty, do you think or is it possible that we might see an actual robust return of the physical recorded medium? The word robust is one to us. But it is certainly the case that at this moment the physical media. Market is you know, it's not insignificant. I think the question to ask is what is fueling it, certainly..

"Sign up for free today. You know, we're talking about the fallout of Napster versus the record labels but returning to Napster itself for just a moment. We mentioned lime wire, of course, Napster had greater brand recognition. But there were other players. There was new Tele kazaa several of them didn't make it. What companies took the idea of what Napster created and successfully built on it. I mean, I don't wanna be too grandiose. But in some ways, you can look at all of digital content purveyors now and say that they trace back to now stir in some way, Netflix for instance, how is it that we as consumers got comfortable with the idea of getting content. You know over the internet, whether it's streaming downloading whatever how do we get comfortable with that? Without Napster Napster was sort of the one that got people used to. You know, wasn't authorized whatever that means legal. But it was easy. It was convenient. It was fairly easy to understand. And so I wonder without Napster. Do you get to the I tune store? Do you get to Spotify? Do you get to Netflix? I don't know. You know, that's an interesting thing. I was thinking about some of the other players in the streaming space. You know, sort of riffing on the Netflix model for the ears is some of them have worked. Well, I notably Spotify. But Amazon tried something like that. And it hasn't really flown. I tunes. I'm not sure I I don't think I tunes radio has really done that. Well, although once upon a time, I tunes was the top digital retailer, you know, Pandoro what about Pandora? I think Sirius XM purchased back in September something like that. Pandora's a really interesting sort of case to look at because in some ways, they were really ahead of the curve and kind of owning the streaming space. If Napster got people used to the idea of sort of the digitization of content. I think Dora did a lot of the work of getting people accustomed to the idea of streaming what that meant how it worked. What they didn't do until it was too late until their lunch had been eaten by Spotify. And apple music is that they didn't respond quickly to people desire for on demand listening, the Pandora model was sort of based on the idea that the Pandora brain would give you what you want based on what you've told it You liked. liked and many people many millions of people like that and likely still do but Spotify said, oh, we won't necessarily choose for you if you'd like to hear whatever we have it for you. And so that I think Pandora was just late in that space, and by that time the other companies were established, and and as we said with Napster versus lime wire versus the many other peer to peer networks were. There's only enough space for a couple of these businesses. What you say, you know, there's there's there's another element here too. And that's the curation..

"But it's done in a way that consumers except using the threat of annihilation at the hands of Napster successors. Like kazaa jobs extracts, a reasonable price ninety nine cents a song, the labels skipped two thirds of that. Which is a hell of a lot better than the zero percent. They get from the pirate services, but the days of forcing people to buy an eighteen dollar CD. When all they want is one hit are never coming back. In announcing the music store jobs pays tribute to Napster declaring that it proved the internet was made for delivering music while noting the dark side of stealing. Now, we acquire music off CDs, right go down by a CD, and we rip it, but we all know that starting in nineteen ninety nine there was this phenomenon called Napster shutdown in two thousand and one, but it demonstrated some things for us it demonstrated that the internet was made for music livery. And it's it's offspring kazaa is alive. And well today distributing lots of tracks. Now, there's a good side bad side of this. He adds there's no legal alternative worth beans. Job said, he was able to negotiate landmark deals with all of the big five music companies universal and then each one after the other, and I have to tell you we met some great people there, and they were willing to to do something with us to go change the world, and we were able to negotiate landmark deals with all the pig.

And even if it did the some it's touting works out to two hundred million dollars a year. Mir pennies per song in a press. Release Rosen declares the offer is dead on arrival. You claim you want to be legitimate and go sheet licenses based on real business models. Well, then active Cordingley stopped the infringements. Stop the delay tactics in court and redouble your efforts to build a legitimate system with no deal on the horizon berry does redouble those efforts. He hires new engineering managers to build a Napster filter racing to beat the courts June thirtieth deadline at first the filter blocks file names, entitled submitted by the labels, but the engineers grown when they see creative users deliberately mix up the names to avai the filters some of them even resort to pig Latin. On June twenty seven just days before the deadline, Napster deploys, a new software to the knocks out everything but one or two percent of the band songs, but that achievement still fall short of the court order Napster could be held in contempt of court. On july. First Napster pulls the plug. After all the struggle the lawsuits that deal making the wrangling John fanning the congressional hearings the old Napster is dead. Now, the founders and developers are slaving away at Napster to to create a version that filters out copyrighted material, but that's a double edged sword. Sure. A paid subscription version might attract the labels in. That is a very big might the more. Basic question is this with other pirates services popping up at the rock bottom? Price of free.

"In our last episode of Napster versus the record labels. The insanely popular file sharing company staved off a preliminary injunction. That would have shut them down though, the outlook for Napster remains bleak. Napster's run out of heroes. Congress is not going to save the company when evidence shows it knowingly ignored piracy and go with the labels. Go sideways when Napster CEO hang berry. First jacks up the buyout price to two billion dollars. And then refuses to give the majority control, universal walks and the other labels follow. All that's left is Bertelsmann. You're listening to episode six fight to the death. Middle Hof has barely contained the rebellion in his own ranks over Napster. Now, he has to make sure that the heart and soul of Napster is truly on board as well. Middle Hof in by Shawn fanning to dinner at the post house in Manhattan, where the order steaks and a two hundred dollar bottle of cabernet middle Hof tries to put Sean at ease nut stirs an incredible achievement takes distribution so much further than where we were. I want you to know that I believe in it, even if my company seems bound to the past. I appreciate it Thomas, but I don't wanna feel like I'm selling out. You know, we've always been about getting artists music to fans without the labels keeping all their money and you own one. So it's a big risk. I mean, you could just shut us down. Look if I wanted to shut you out all of it would have to do is nothing you'd lose in court. So, you know, I believe in natural technology. All right. And I can't help it survive. I think we can spread the piece by getting the other labels. They see. Me as one of them. If we come together Napster and Bertelsmann we'll be in much better position to get them to sign up Napster agrees to the terms. Now, they have to sell this idea to the labels. At a New York hotel ballroom middle hop. Schmidt berry and Sean announce the deal Napster will develop a new paid service for music from BMG and other labels that join the old Napster will go away and BMG will then drop it's part of the record industry's lawsuit. Schmidt makes it clear he wants company the industry has not embraced file sharing. We are going to change that we invite everybody in the industry to work with us. She made it middle Hof think their peers will eventually come around and see that however distasteful it might be to work with Napster. The alternative is worse. If Napster doesn't get a chance to go straight users aren't going to turn to the legal services. They're going to go full pirate. But not only are the label. Chiefs unenthusiastic about the deal. They're downright insulted. They were supposed to be in this together and middle Hof broke ranks. This is the record industry were talking about old school tough guys. Now, they may criticize this strategy or the technology, but really they want to punish middle Hoffer. What they see as his betrayal. The day after the deal is made public universals. Edgar Bronfman calls middle Hof. You might a mistake Thomas. You don't have technology that will stop piracy, and you don't have a business model either. And you went in without us. If you think we're going to pay you to be part of this. You are mistaken, sir. Bronfman is right. No other labels step up. Meanwhile, Napster is still humming away on computers around the world. Moving music to millions of people who didn't pay. In February two thousand one Napster gets a crushing disappointment. And a Ray of hope the ninth circuit court of appeals rules that Napster users are violating copyrights and that the labels request for an immediate injunction to stop the site is warranted. But there's one thing that goes Napster's way the court rules that the labels must provide the names of copyrighted.

So he's under a lot of stress with the company. He did admit in that podcast that this is what? Keeps him up at night. He said SpaceX is no walk into park. But a car companies really really hard. Okay. Now help me on the trying to go back and walk through the timeframe in my mind. It was this guy. Dave Morton was the announcement that Elon Musk taking the company private that was within this month. So that happened under this guy's watch. Right. Yeah. I happen to I. Yeah. About a month ago? Yeah. The first week of August is when the tweet came out two weeks later, the SEC said, hey, we're interested in what you have there. And then the blog post came out that walked it all back. Okay. So I'm wondering did. Do you think this guy brought that idea in or was this idea unveiled right after he came through the door? Wow. This this kind of its opening a whole new Pandora's box. It it is it goes towards the brain drain friend seems to be happening there, and yeah, you're right. It does not look good. So another optics hit for tesla slash Musk's today. If if the if that financial officers splits after only one month, it's not because he didn't like his corner office. No, no, no. You didn't like what he was walking into. And I don't know they usually pretty well on both sides at that level. When you're the sea level, you're vetting on both sides to make sure it's a fit because you don't want this kind of Pat headache with your shareholders. Because now there's going to be looked like there's two -bility in all the corner offices now and you coming off of a bad optics of, you know, pulling on a blunt

"In napster and all that in the early days of the internet helped shape the free adsupported information content of the internet today like people got trained on the idea that it wasn't really stealing because you know i can't remember who this is but there was once a comedian i heard doing a comedy act about those old piracy commercials that are like you wouldn't steal a car a why would you why would you steal music but the comedian said you know i would steal a car if all i had to do was touch the car and then an instant copy of the car would be created and i could have it and the original person could keep their car and you know is he created the sense because it was digital information that could be copied without consequence that you weren't really taking from any body you're just getting a copy of a thing yeah it's out there in all i am doing his breathing it in as if it were air yeah and so it like trained people on this idea that that you know information should be free in as as has been said information wants to be free but it's led to this world where okay to produce information you have to spend money right to like in anything that is made on the internet if you want to run a website if you want to write an article if you want to create a podcast if you want to create a video almost none of this can be done for free you have to invest in it and so that's gotta be paid for somehow and so the way everything works including us here is that you pay for things by running ads that's right i mean in the old and that's not even getting into the idea that people were putting their time into creating things in that time has to come out of your life right and you in the individual the individual creator has bills to pay and a roof to maintain and the needs to have food to eat right and so the way technology companies and digital media companies can pay for themselves is to run advertisements in the way they can increase the amount of money they're making and that they can charge advertisers is basically twofold i think one is simply by.

"Which was really about uh tunnel maja went to society would be like if it were organized on the same principles as like napster you know early peertopeer file sharing uh technologies where there was no scarcity 'cause the cool thing about napster is that the more people there were trying to get a file the more places there were two downloaded from and so the easier was to get at which was really interesting right normally the more in demand something as the less there is a vet up with napster and then later with bittorrent demand actually create supply which is you know nothing short of miraculous um and then with with makers it was about increased efficiency in making right that the ability to make things better so there's a frequent observation that uh if everyone in the world were to live with the quality of life of americans that we would need six planet earth worth of raw materials to supply that life and that may be true but the other thing that's true is that markets for the last several hundred years have been steadily reducing the myth cereals labour an energy embodied by our physical goods because the less of that all of us things are expensive and so the lesson that there is in a in a finish good that less the good cost to make more profit there is unless you can charge threatened better you can compete and so there's a great study by these two bank of canada economists where they use these old ikeya catalogues his data sets their spouses had been nagging them to get rid of their huge collections of ikeya catalogues and what they found is that the the biggest predictor of a single item appearing in an eye care catalogue from year to year is that each year it gets lighter it has fewer countries of origin and it packs into fewer cubic inches so that is to say in embodies less energy fewer logistics less fuel and less material and so to billy bookcases separated by a decade look identical by you know under their skins in terms of their material science in their origins they are absolutely different animals and they're they're kind of a miracle of engineering each one so.

"So you've had this steady decline for about fifteen years about five years or so ago revenues flattened and then just in the last two years in business says especially in two thousand sixteen we saw some real growth in the industry and that's been mainly from uh streaming and in particular paid subscriptions from streaming and what do you see as the reason for that decline is it as simple as to say that the internet came along and that just hit your revenues or is it something more i think it's a number of different things i mean clearly the internet was part of it in the way that people consume music was different um so you had an album world going to a singles world you also had a tremendous amount of piracy fifteen years ago when napster came along and you know the the napster progeny like rockstar and khuzaa uh after that and so you had a lot of things happening it at one time that were you know very disruptive to the industry uh and so you had this very kind of you know pretty rapid decline i mean you don't often see for an industry is mature as as the recording industry to have that kind of decline over essentially a decade uh so uh you know those those reasons i piracy was was the biggest one obviously but the way people consume music uh y you know as part of it as well and you could argue that piracy was kind of the precursor to streaming in many ways i mean from a consumer perspective.
