I personally think that as we age farther and farther in technowledgy, older ones are going to be pushed away. With YouTube hosting music awards, this could be a start of big changes on actually television with a decrease of people wating to watch music awards on tv and now online, in which now cable and satillite tv could have a bigger competitor than each other than

Youtube Music Awards sounds very interesting. This is different from any type of award show and the celebrities are still participating in the web event. The article gave great ideas for artists not actually know on tv but , network wise to set up their music to be feature during the award. Reading this article, I know that this will not replace the original award show but, continunig on the tradition. Youtube is basically trying to the user that there is a chance for you and your talent can become known.

How Spotify Engineered the New Music Economy | music business | Scoop.it
In a post-Napster music industry, Spotify seems to have concocted a winning monetization formula, but not all its participants are happy with the numbers.

travis eskridge's insight:

the article talks about how succesful downloadable sites have become and how they play an important roll in the industry sites like napster and spotify.

Pros:you could receive revenue from this as artist everytime your music is downloaded.

Cons: if your and indie artist you wouldnt be able to live off of downloads and it would make it hard to have a stable career.

Spotify was possibly the straw that broke the camels back and forced the music industry to accept the free portion of the business

Alessandro Marquez's curator insight, October 12, 2013 11:43 AM
The matter of the fact is, online music streaming services, such as Spotify and many others, doesn’t pay artist as fairly. Though, it may be a harsh reality, on the bright side, their music is being heard, and on the other side of things, artist are gaining new fans and new opportunities because of these new online music streaming services, because their music is simply but a click away, and anyone with internet access has the ability to listen to it. There’s still a grey area in all of this, but most importantly, their music is being heard, and there’s plenty of other sources for artist to make profit off of. But, artist should appreciate the fact that there music is being heard, because your fans are priceless.

Spotify is good for letting the music industry for selling and listening numbers , instead of looking for social media webistes like facebook and/or twitter. Some artists do not have any knowledge about selling their music and knowing if it is good are not the billboard. Spotify can make you or break you for sells but sometimes this website maybe for availablity.

Blu-Ray players are popular now and are being used more than standard DVD players. To include VEVO on them will increase interaction when using home theater systems and will boost music video views, therefore encouraging artists to make more music videos. Soon, VEVO and other sites that host video will be available on everything that plugs into the wall, probably.

This article explains some of the benefits of an artist's crazy actions. Although most people look at Miley as some type of slut trying to prove herself as a grown woman, the way she acts has had a positive impact on her income from music.

Bianca Brown's curator insight, October 13, 2013 1:57 PM

Taking on a new persona is hard to pull off but, can be worth it. The article used Miley Cyrus as a great example and also the aurthor realizes that she is not the only artist turning a new leaf. Britteny Spears and Madonna were moving to a different  light for their sells.It is the well organized and I understood his message since the beginning of the paragraph. I enjoyed the many other examples of the many artists.

Kyron McGruder's curator insight, November 9, 2013 11:53 PM

this article outlines the importance of "reinvention" of yourself to the world; After you are doing well in the industry. 

pros of this is that you have a chance to reach out to new audiences gaining more exposure and ultimately more more sales.

cons of this are that your fans may not like the new you, and turn their backs on you and favor another artist
