Today at Daily Fix, I go in a completely different direction and tackle a new topic, my idea of '100 CDs for 100 bloggers'.
I'm going to keep blogging about this until one of three things happens:
1 - Someone from a label gives me a viable reason why they CAN'T do this (Not won't, can't).
2 - Everyone stops reading me.
3 - A label decides that 'You know...that would probably work, let's try it!'.
I'm hopeful that it will be #3, but as determined as the labels appear to be to stay away from anything that makes too much sense, it could be #2.
UPDATE: Michael at Tech Crunch says this today when considering television shows that can be downloaded on the internet: "Frankly, I look forward to the day that a show, ignored by the networks, first decides to launch itself on iTunes and go straight to consumers. The press around it would be overwhelming. The first to do it will have a big advantage."(My emphasis added)
The same dynamic would be at work here for the first label that decides it wants to give away music to bloggers. The positive buzz in the blogosphere would be overwhelming, and the first label to do this is going to win serious points with music fans, as will the artist/band.
