Leadership Music Digital Summit is going on today in Nashville. The keynote was delivered by the CEO of iLike, Ali Partovi, who mentioned that it was the first keynote he has given.
With all of the questions, concerns and potential regarding the future of music technology, Ali made a point to say, “What I’m most excited about is the discovery and promotion of music”.
Ali compared traditional broadcast media with new media:
**Traditional media is “untargeted, focused only on hits & singles, while album development suffers”.
**Digital media is “personalized, social, syndicated, targeted and enables artists to pursue their dreams.”
Partovi went on to say that digital media “could replace or solve the problems of traditional broadcasting”.
More highlights from the Digital Summit will be posted this week.
