The Entertainment Sky Is Rising

If you read this blog with any kind of regularity, you know that I'm one who is quite optimistic about the entertainment business, and the music business in particular. You hear a lot of doom and gloom and rather bold "sky is falling" statements in the media, but most of them are from the old guard of the business who's business is under attack.

It's quite true that things are different fiscally than they've ever been before, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. All it means is that the entertainment world as we know it is morphing, shifting and evolving to a new model. If you're part of the old school, the last thing you want is this change because things were so comfortable as they were, but it's too late - we're in the middle of something completely new. It's Music 3.0.

Here's a great inforgraphic from Techdirt by way of the great Hypebot blog that explains how the entertainment sky is rising rather than falling.
