Comment bum rush the charts, NPR story (Score 3, Interesting) 544

there's an effort to make an independent artist #1 on iTunes today
(dunno if it's a scam or not, but it's an interesting idea)

also, there was an interesting story on NPR a while back about recording technology, including some mention of the fact that some people were upset when it came along and changed the way people experienced music (from gathering around and playing/singing to just listening). Music will always be around. The Recording Industry won't.
