Music Think Tank

For those of you interested in Music 2.0 and music business in general, I’m writing for the group blog Music Think Tank which just launched yesterday. I’m really excited and honored to be part of this project that includes a great cast of thought leaders in the world of online music. Please go check it out when you have a moment!
