Musicians Getting Paid? - BVB8

Some musicians want to be paid for their time and effort. Is that really what’s going to happen?


Rich shares his comments about a recent post by Bob Lefsetz at the Lefsetz Letter. Bob notes that many musicians feel that their time, effort and diligence should entitle them to getting paid. He comments that just because they have distribution channels and a CD to sell doesn’t mean that people might actually want to buy it.


Rich adds a thought that musicians should have a plan, including business model, vision, mission, and passion if they do want to market their music.

Daily Nonsense - Show 8 - A Laptop for Every Child. A Solution Looking for a Problem?

Check out my Daily PodCast for the month of November, and listen to Show 8 where I talk some about this topic.

I'm a geek... yeah, who would've figured that what with my being involved in NaPodPoMo?... but a laptop for every child? I heard an interview on CBC's Search Engine with one of the key designers on the project, and had some thoughts and questions.

Is this inherently a good idea? For kids who can't afford food, healthcare, housing, are unemployed or at risk of being killed, raped or put to work as a child soldier... is a laptop the solution to their problems?

I think education is a great idea. I think child-led education is great. What do y'all think about the laptop for every child program?

If you really want to help with this program, be aware that you can participate in the "Get 1, Give 1" program through their site XO Giving. The purchase program opens November 12, and you can own one of these laptops for 400 USD. The idea is you buy a 200 USD laptop for yourself and one for a child who needs one.

I update y'all on what's going on in my NaPodPoMo-addled brain. Thanks to Jennifer from Morning Brewcast for getting us all together. You can check out my contributions to the NaPodPoMo project by putting the feed for the group in your PodCatcher or by going over to the Daily Nonsense site. Swing on over and let Jesse know that her Red on Green PodCast is going well. Don't forget that you can get a free London Starbucks Card (while his supplies last) from This Week in London the best darned PodCast about London by a guy who grew up in the Big Smoke. Finally, don't forget to check out the awesome books by Mur and JC at Podiobooks.com.

This show's background music is "Waiting for the Light" and "Headed in the Right Direction" by Wings over Water, and the closing music is from "Cast That Ballot" by the Lascivious Biddies.


Daily Nonsense - an experiment in PodCasting

DAILY Nonsense?

First whenever, but mostly every two weeks... then weekly... now DAILY?


You see, authors engage in an annual ritual called National Novel Writing Month, and commit to writing every day for a month. Many use this as a way to kick start ideas or find out if they're really cut out for the whole authoring gig.

Jennifer of the Morning Brewcast (a PodCast about coffee that is on my list) decided that she wanted to start a similar concept for PodCasters called National PodCast Post Month (NaPodPoMo)... and yes, there's already one for VidCasters and Bloggers, so we're potentially late to the game.

Rather than subject you to hearing this experiment in my feed for Little Bit/Whole Lot of Nonsense, I'm creating a new feed just for this experiment. You all know the deal, right click on that link and paste it into your favourite PodCatcher, or use this link for a one-click subscription to iTunes.

Join me and give me some feedback on how this experiment is going.
