Paul Cantrell is a blogger and music podcaster who also happens to be a software engineer. (I wonder which one is his superhero alter ego?) He spoke at last Saturday’s MinneBar conference on “The Internet and the Future of Art.” It was an interactive session which made things a bit tricky to record, but I think you’ll be able to hear most of the audience questions pretty well.
Just to keep things on topic for this blog, I think you could take most of what Paul says about the big music business and apply it to the educational business. He’s really talking about the “Long Tail,” which applies just as much to educational content as it does to artistic content.
Update: Here are the diagrams Paul created during his session.
