MidemNet Blog: Midem is Sixty Days Out, So Much To Think About!

MidemNet 2010 is sixty days out & I can’t wait to be back in Cannes!

2009 has been an amazing year for digital and mobile music, some of the notable events & game-changers, in no particular order:

  • Spotify
  • Nokia’s ‘Comes With Music’
  • Topspin
  • Twitter
  • Google Search Box initiative
  • YouTube/Warner Music detente
  • The iMeem fire sale
  • The debut of Hello Music
  • Ongoing drama with: Pirate Bay’s wind-down, Choruss, Q Trax, ISP Levies, Playlist.com, Michael Robertson & EMI

I look forward to spirited discussion around:

  • The future of music as service
  • The role of ISP as gate keeper and fee collector
  • Artist Development in 2010
  • Monetizing the live experience
  • Creating new revenue streams

It’s going to be great seeing old friends & making new ones. The integration of MidemNet into Midem will finally join the present and the future of music, it’s time to stop the hand-wringing and winging and get on with it!

See you on the Croisette!
