Listen to Spotify's Top Songs of 2013 | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Spotify just revealed its annual recap of the year's most-streamed songs, albums and artists. Listen to the top global songs and domestic songs right here.
Ken Morrison's insight:

I am sharing this for three reasons:

1) You may enjoy listening to these songs

2) You may enjoy learning what other people listen to

3) I think that it is interesting how similar the US list is to the World List. I believe that is sad.

Who killed the music industry?

Who killed the music industry? | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Is piracy the real reason why music industries are making less money than fifteen years ago?

Ken Morrison's insight:

Without being too wordy, this is the most complete explanation that I have read about the real reason why the music industry is not as profitable as it used to be.  Itunes and Napster were disrupters, but there is more to the story.

Charlie Dare's comment, August 12, 2013 8:08 PM
Users will find other ways to listen to the music they love, either on YouTube or by stealing it. And while the back catalogs of thousands of beloved musicians are still under the control of the old guard, newcomers will continue to go the independent route if it means they get to keep more of their royalties.

Ken Morrison's insight:

No friends or fans.  You simply connect.  One drawback is that you don't connect just with an artist.  You have to connect with each song.  A bit redundant.  The horizontal scrolling bar will take some getting used to.  It has been a long time since I have logged into myspace (2007), but I really like how you can listen to radio stations that focus on your favorite artists.  I will definitely use it as a background window for mello or energetic accoustic music and a way to give social klout to artists who I appreciate.

Thank you for sharing this, Prof. Ken. I did use Myspace from 2004 to 2007 and then I started to see Facebook growing and Myspace going down. It happened so fast and dramatic that I always wondered what Myspace executives were doing in order to counterattack Facebook. After reading this article, I decided to give it a try and see if it had potential to grow like Facebook!

페이스북이전의 미국의 페이스북이라 할수있는 마이스페이스는 페이스북의 등장으로 수많은 유저들을 잃고 사람들의 기억에서 잊혀져 갔다. 이 잊혀진 소셜미디어사이트는 이번에 어떤 새로운 기능들을 가지고 사람들에게 어필을 했을까요? 이 기사가 알려줍니다.

 

Former Facebook, Myspace, has launched a totally different style and purpose  website. Anyone who used Myspace before Facebook, why not give it a try and give them a chance to redeem customers back!

Everything is a Remix: Part 4

Everything is a Remix episode 4, produced by Kirby Ferguson, a New York-based filmmaker.

 

"Our system of law doesn't acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries.

 

But ideas aren't so tidy. They're layered, they’re interwoven, they're tangled."

Tudo é um remix...

As nossas ideias são consideradas, do ponto de vista do Direito, como propriedade, como únicas e com limites bem definidos.

Será isso um MEME? .

( O meme , termo criado por Richard Dawkins é o análogo do gene na genética.  É uma unidade de evolução cultural que pode de alguma forma autopropagar-se. Podem ser ideias, línguas, sons, desenhos, capacidades, valores estéticos e morais, ou qualquer outra coisa que possa ser aprendida e transmitida.)

PicoVico is a web app, very similar to Slide.ly, which allows you generate a music video made out of your favorite photos. PicoVico makes it easy to select your preferred photos (either from computer or from your social media profiles) and to arrange it in a sequence, that you can personalize with your music and titles.


PicoVico also offers a set of pre-designed video "themes" from which you can select your favorite "style" and allows you to fully customize the pictures, order, titles and soundtrack that will be displayed in your clip.


Final videos are published to YouTube or Facebook at 360p resolution.


An upcoming paid version will allow for exporting and saving the video also at higher video quality levels including HD.


Free to use.

Stevie brings MTV-style social video curation to the iPad | GigaOM

Stevie brings MTV-style social video curation to the iPad | GigaOM | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"Plenty of people are trying really hard to make online video more like TV. Israel-based web video curation startup Stevie is a little more specific about its goal: It wants online video to look like a hit show on MTV, back when MTV was still groundbreaking. 

 

The app, which just became available in the App Store this weekend, features more or less the same UI and functionality as Stevie’s web application: a continuous stream of short online videos consisting of things your contacts share on Facebook and Twitter as well as popular clips shared by a number of celebrities, divided into small programming units.

 

There’s a “show” for personalized content, one for funny stuff, one for music videos and one for celebrity clips. And in case you get bored, Stevie also displays Facebook birthdays, the latest tweets and status updates of your contacts, and a whole bunch of other information in a sidebar and two scrolling tickers..."

For $500 you will never have to untangle your ear phone cords again.    Although, I can't count how many times my cords have saved me from losing a pair of earphones when biking.  I love the idea of leaving my ipod in my locker when at the gym or walking to the yard or other room without losing my place in a documentary.
