      Tipsheet Email June 27, 2011 — Julia Nunes / Kickstarter, turntable.fm

      Final words on this whole “Buy One, Gift One” thing — got an email from Eventbrite’s Ty White last week, telling me that he did this very thing three months ago via Topspin, allowing fans who bought the new album download from All Smiles to gift a second copy to a friend!

      Ty notes that 21% of the band’s fans took them up on this offer — happy with the double-digit results, but noting that larger participation was limited by, Read More…

        Tipsheet Email April 25, 2011 — THANK YOU for 10 Years of Self-Employment

        June 9, 2011 by scott / Comment (0)

        The weeks ahead mark a couple of big anniversaries in my life — I was laid off during the dotcom bust ten years ago this May, which lead me to pursue a path of self-employment. More importantly, this week marks my 40th birthday, which means I barely spent a week of my entire 30′s working for someone else — every man & woman’s dream, right? Truth is, for the past 10 years, Read More…

            NMT Email Feb 28, 2011 — Waterloo Records Shows, Live Streaming

            by scott / Comment (0)

            One of the things that excites me the most about today’s technology is that it is being used to highlight the activities worldwide of any local culture. This will be in full effect this year at Austin texas indie store Waterloo Records, where they will be streaming all their SXSW instore performances live on their website.

            Waterloo has been the cornerstone of Austin’s music community for decades; their impact in the local culture and economy cannot be Read More…

              Only thing I got to say about this year’s Grammys – everyone is surprised that Lady Antebellum won everything but Album of the Year? Really? I know a lot of folks thought the big categories were going to be Read More…

                NMT Email Dec 6, 2010 — The Challenge of the Modern Consumer

                December 7, 2010 by scott / Comment (0)

                Hot damn, the American consumer is back! Black Friday sales saw double digit growth, and internet sales topped $1 billion for the first time ever. Two Michael Jackson gloves went for $200,000 each and Johnny Cash’s San Quentin jumpsuit sold for $50,000 at auction this weekend.

                Quite a different story from the world I am getting a peek at, where I am dealing with broke-ass Craigslist vultures who are asking for $10 off a $20 set of garden tools that would normally retail for $100. Where photo fanatics will bid up a 50 year old camera (that may or may not work) to $200, but the Read More…
