Great post Bob, thanks.

Derek Sivers did a CDBaby get together at Hotel Cafe in LA during the day, turned out to be a pretty cool event and I think everyone knows where it is.

Thanks for the links! I really like how some of them are not specifically about the music industry.

I am a firm believer in thinking outside the box and taking advice from other areas and applying them to your music marketing.
