  • The discussion of Borders/digital distribution, especially Sam’s stance, mades two key assumptions:

    1) people have reliable access to internet
    2) these people also have a credit card to make online purchases

    A few quick Google searches leads me to believe that as much as 1/3 of the population in the US never use the internet (not to mention those with poor connections or little interest), and a similar number (probably with a fair amount of overlap) do not have credit cards. Without access to reliable internet, discovering music is very difficult, if not impossible. Anecdotally, I work with at least one person who still uses a dial-up internet connection and doesn’t use his computer for anything other than email.

    I guess the point I’m making is that while things are heading in an all or mostly digital direction, there is still a large section of the population who rely on “brick and mortar” stores.

  • As you said at the end of the show, please have Drew back on about his thoughts about how composers should be involved with orchestras. I would love to hear about that.

    • I second that–bring back Drew and talk about ways of incorporating composers into the orchestral context on more than an ad hoc basis!
