RJ Eskow chimed in about Patti Smith's dubious appointment to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I mean, considering what Rock and Roll has become: A multi-billion dollar industry that sues music fans and wants to stamp out internet radio. There's been a lot of media attention to this, and NPR is
stirring over the new internet radio royalty rates.
Meanwhile, Slacker is in
the pipeline: a satelite/internet radio/media player mashup service aiming for a $7.50 per month subscription. All that for the price of voice mail. I know what I'd pick -- I never really enjoyed voice mail anyway.
