Time for a link round-up of sorts. I’m going to aim to do this once a week, to help introduce everyone to some of the other cool articles out there on the web. Some people are quite prolific in their writing, and always saying great things you can learn from, so you’ll no doubt see some of the same names and sites repeated as time goes by – but that’s the nature of writing and writing well. You should get to know these folks as they’ll help you stay on top of your game throughout your entertainment career.
If you’re going to be in NYC February 27th-28th, 2007, you might want to wander on over to check out Digital Music East. Its a great place to schmooze and learn more about what’s happenening in the world of digital music. $800. bucks will get you in this year if you’re dying to pay to hear the speakers, etc. HOWEVER, if you’re a student or a music business wannabee as I imagine you are, how about getting a little bit creative? The entertainment business is, after all, a creative industry, right? So if you don’t have the dough, you’re going to miss out on the speakers. That kinda sucks, but what you can do is meet the people GOING to the events by walking right into the lobby of the Museum of Jewish Heritage where the event is being held. Now, I am not advocating breaking any laws, or trying to sneak your way into this event. Please note! However, the registration is most likely in the lobby and there will be a lot of people getting their things straight before the event starts. So, if you’re up to it, wander in and see if you can’t strike up a few conversations. Most folks will be wearing badges with their names and companies right on their chests, so it should make things easy. Try it!
