• CDs vs downloads: Aiming to bridge the digital divide (26th March 2006)

    Today’s Sunday Business Post features and article I wrote on the online music market, You can view the piece on their site here.

    The article is connected to a recent post on my blog in relation to the pre-order campaign for Pearl Jam‘s upcoming album; people who preorder the CD on their site will be able to download the entire album on the day of release and will also recieve the physical CD in the post. To me this is a clever mixture of both types of online purchase and one that solves the problems each presents. It’s an idea that could be adopted by other bands and labels in the future too.
