The Agency Deputy CIO (DCIO), Enterprise Architect (EA), IT System/Security Manager (ITSM) and the Open Data Community Evangelist (ODCE) – Over Cafeteria Coffee The DCIO & ITSM at a table, talking about the annual IT budget status. The ODCE drifts over, recognizes the ITSM from a recent agency newsletter. ODCE – "Can I sit here? I wanted to talk to you about opening up data, freeing it, from your system to my Github group. Want to join? It’s at ODCE.io., plus there will be an announcement soon on Sharepoint." ITSM – "Um, sure. Do you have a badge? Who do you work for?"

Making Real Money for Bands in the Age of Social Media - Democratization of the Royalties Model, by Gideen.com

Welcome to Music Business 3.0 - it's not about the $1 song anymore. Most artists these days are gifting songs away just for email addresses, the occasional "like". The 3.0 music business model is about creating tracks and collecting many different revenue types internationally for each track/song.
