This was a very reliable source as well. A lot of well known people and many people around the globe use the Forbes list all the time.

I do not believe it's very well informative of the audio industry. I kinda seen more benefit of this article as a presentation more than informative. Many because the way the writer talked in his context.

Five observations from my time at YouTube | New Music Industry | Scoop.it

"I joined Google and YouTube because I saw a great opportunity to bring tech and music together and do right by artists, the industry and fans.
