More From Digital Music Forum West

Another fine article from Wired as they covered the Digital Music Forum West last week.  This go-round is about social networks, music discovery and recommendation services.  A few morsels:

– Radio is still an essential part of the marketing mix. But I question the charts as a goal. The ability of artists to connect with fans is more important.  Exposure is a limited win game. You see a lot of exposure — the question is, once you’ve got people exposed and engaged, how do you get the user to take action — register an email address, buy something, etc.?

– The demographic for radio is trending older.  Discovery is happening exclusively online for the younger demographic.

– Terrestrial radio is a great passive experience for lots of people, but by and large, they aren’t tastemakers anymore.- The perception of the cost of music is dropping to zero. When users get music for free next to an ad, they lose the perception that music costs money.

    Both of these can be enhanced and corrected through the use of virtual reality and at the same time that these things are happening an ultra-accurate three dimensional representation of the body can also be created to help you understand exactly how the pain is caused and what you can do in terms of orientating your body against it. Such technology is new and has all the potential in the world which means that it is only going to get better with time.
    People therefore prefer to shop from the convenient of their homes rather than drive to an actual pharmacy. Another reason why online pharmacies have become very popular is because it is possible to browse though a great number of medical prescriptions and drugs in a very short time. In addition to this over sweating in many cases is also a result when a person starts panicking and in under so much stress, so getting meditation can be a lot effective way of over sweating treatment. Many people face problems with mental stress and pressure that is caused when they go out with others. So now no more getting embarrassed going to parties, get together with families and friends. Birth injuries occur more often than most people believe and sometimes the injuries occur because of the negligence of doctors, nurses or the hospital. Mothers have a deep respect for the doctor and nurses who helped bring their baby into the world. Because of this a very sad and tragic result is that often the mother blames herself for the birth injury. She just cannot perceive the doctor might be negligent. Most doctors, nurses and hospitals are excellent but when malpractice is involved in a birth injury the baby and parents must be adequately compensated. And beyond compensation, it is important that responsibility be appropriately assigned so the mother does not suffer needless emotional stress.
