Creative Commons 365 & Newsweek

Here's a cool idea masterminded by Grant Robertson of It's a podcast called "Creative Commons Three Sixty Five." Starting Jan. 1, every day it will deliver one song licensed under the Creative Commons.

According to the site:

We're diligently working to build the music library, with a large portion of next year already in the system and ready to feed. If you're a musician who releases music under the Creative Commons and want to be included in the CC:365 calendar, let us know.

Check it out.

Making Their Own Breaks

How did I miss this one? The Oct. 3 issue of Newsweek magazine featured an awesome article called "Making Their Own Breaks" and subtitled "Technology is helping aspiring writers, musicians, artists and filmmakers go from amateur to pro. Who needs an agent when you've got the Net?"

My indie-minded friend Gilli Moon is prominently quoted, as is Buzz Factor patron Dave Cool, self-published author Angela Hoy (who was featured in my Branding Yourself Online book), author Peter Spellman and several other do-it-yourselfers.

Great article. Read it and let their stories inspire you to greater indie heights!
