Another old idea made new
The year is 1998. I am the CEO of Encoding.com. People are coming out of the woodwork to try to monitize their audio archives on the internet. I am talking to Robert Fripp of King Crimson fame. He wants to "monitize his live archives." He is in town talking to other bands. Notably Pearl Jam who have a DAT tape of every concert they ever did. The label doesn't want to put out that many live albums. What is a band to do? Fripp ended up starting a .com that failed miserably. Now iTunes is trying to make this idea new: Widespread Panic I guess in time, all ideas have their time.
