speaking appearances

If you'd like to see more of me on video, I had an appearance on the show ZeD, and another one at SXSW (scroll down a bit for my name on the SXSW page).

The brain-damaged QuickTime Player goes out of sync at second 2 of the video on my box. Nevertheless, pretty interesting, you sound pretty radical there, down with mass media, down with distribution cartels, and all that, but makes sense.

Oddly, the crowd at sxsw was being fairly hostile. I'm not sure whata political slant they wanted me to promote, but it clearly wasn't what I was saying.

The cartels thing sounds radical but is hardly out of line. The RIAA and MPAA both claim, in so many words, to be the unified mouthpiece for an entire industry, and ClearChannel owns way more than 50% of the music radio channels in the entire country. It's one of those industries like sports which is simply given a free pass from antitrust legislation.
