It’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound?

What a fabulous time to be alive!

It’s Gutenberg all over again, but this time with movable music and video (YouTube) in the place of movable type. A Renaissance of publishing creativity is underway.

And some of my favorite musicians are using the free presses to make protest music again. Unlike the 1970s, today they don’t have to sell it to a record label or sell it to a radio station or even sell tickets. Publish it and they will come.

For What It’s Worth:

As of today, two weeks or so after the video went up on YouTube, there were 323 text responses and eight video responses. I would call that some nice healthy citizen engagement.

Nice.
