Tiny Mix Tapes: The Myth Of DIY

I have a new article up on tinymixtapes.com today. You can read it here.

It's a complicated technological transition with many gray areas. My goal is to nudge people, notably compulsive downloaders, to just pause for a minute to think about what kind of music culture is being created if very few people are paying artists for their work.

The positive of greater exposure is a notable and meaningful one, but I'm trying to present the other side and balance the argument somewhat. More than anything, I hope some greater discussion in the music community can begin to happen over these very sticky issues.
