Who likes you?

There is so much to learn from the music business!!

NPR did a brilliant one hour On the Media on sampling, girl talk, making $, and fans. I love what Amanda Palmer of Dresden Dolls has to say about selling tshirts ($11,000 via Twitter in 2 hours when she was bored?). And this Band Metrics thing? delineates single-users, fans, and supporters? Helps us understand the full spectrum of who likes us and why.....(Band Metrics beta site is down it seems but stay tuned!)

And here's our own Nick Brooke, music sampler extraordinaire, at WNYC explaining how he is using music samples to raise some dough, build his fan base, and create his next show.
