In case you've not noticed, DiS' music biz Insider is back http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4143689-the-insider--listen-to-the-brand
Quite a few things discussed in there, from herd mentality to the the way 'marketing wonks' try to reduce music fandom down to tidy little boxes.
Some of the thoughts of Spotify and Facebook are particularly pertinent. Anyway. curious what you all make of it.
