U2’s mananger Paul McGuinness’s speech at Cannes is very long and covers a lot of ground about how the music industry and the internet might work together. While certainly progressive in places I think he’s wrong in a lot of areas. In short, he seems ignorant of the concept of network neutrality and ultimately comes across as believing the very nature of the internet needs to be changed, rolled back to a more authoritarian model. I, obviously, think this is a bad thing. But hey, it’s not my industry on the line here… via the NMS Newswire

About this site
In June 2000 I started blogging at peteashton.com and 10 years later in June 2010 I decided to stop. Blogging here, that is. I started a clean slate over on I Am Pete Ashton and maintain all manner of other web presences which are all listed here along with my contact details.
You probably came here via a Google search or from following a link on some old blog post somewhere. I hope what you find is useful in some way, though do check the publication date - it might be rather old now.
Thanks for your eyeballs.
