Matt Welch interviews Derek Sivers, the guy who runs CDBaby:

Like right now, I meet lots of 30-something musicians, who maybe spent their teens and 20s wanting to be a rock star, and now are kind of starting to think, ‘Well, maybe I can make a good living just putting out my music directly and doing it on my own.’ But they kind of had to fall over to that way of thinking. What I think will be really interesting is, imagine being a 13-year-old musician right now, growing up surrounded by this mentality of ‘Fuck the label, the label sucks, indie is cool, go direct, never sign over your rights to somebody else’! Imagine growing up in that mentality, and what that’s going to look like in 10 years!
