Anybody know if Google's long-time-coming new data structure standard - Schema.org - might play into this at all? Seems plausible when looking at stuff like this: http://schema.org/MusicRecording

HYPEBOT RULEZ! Hello all, it's your boy Matthias Galica. Been a long time since I rapped at ya', and at the moment I suppose we can say that I'm the big mouth representing both ShareSquare (http://getsharesquare.com/) and BEASTMODE.FM (http://beastmode.fm/). Hooray! Most importantly, I wanted to drop off my favorite holiday season mashup track for everyone's entertainment. Enjoy :P ♫ DJ Schmolli - Jingle Bells Pon De Floor http://beastmode.fm/track/1345267?ref=galica via @BEASTMODEfm

I think Clyde deserves some credit for injecting the basic idea surrounding BEASTMODE.FM into my head around the time of original writing. He's a good man, and thorough.

I've known Joey Flores personally for over 3 years now, and I'd like to go on record as saying that this man is salt of the earth. It was precisely because of his desire to make a positive difference in the music biz that he left what would have been a promising, lucrative, and frankly easier career in the performance/affiliate marketing space. Also I'm happy to put a succinct end to this conversation, with science: it is physically impossible for anyone with dreadlocks longer than 3 feet to ever do anything that could hurt the music industry. Q.E.D.

If music tracks are a commodity comparable to corn, then I'd like to trade the rights to a couple of these songs I just made with my ukelele for the licenses to some David Bowie songs plz. Or better yet, if we're talking about the US government and US corn farmers, then I'll actually go for one of those deals where I get paid to leave my fields fallow. Or where I can make high fructose corn syrup, or ethanol, and sell it in the US while benefiting from protectionist tariffs.

Importantly, scale also makes it easier to attain critical mass for precious network effects ("you might also like XYZ", "3 concerts in your hood tonight","you've unlocked secret content for being a tastemaker!"). Then, much easier to get there if you already have a consistent base of organic traffic. So it's what Myspace Music mobile could have become, and perhaps a reason Artists.MTV should be completely reconsidering the content/experience of the upcoming bandpages on mobile web? Hopefully they'll hook up with experts in the mobile web space like they partnered with Topspin, cough.

I feel compelled to offer all the participants a ShareSquare Premium mobile site for some degree of free. Hit me up if y'all plan on addressing mobile web during this webinar and I'll supply the coupon codes.

The monkey thing is a trip lol. Also pretty entertaining, at least the first time. Which then makes me wonder whether there's fresh monkey content every couple weeks.

Love it Bruce, you Hypebot gents are doing well to educate artists on the best ways to connect with their offline audiences using QR codes. And much thanks for the http://getsharesquare.com/ shoutout on yesterday's post. Here's a few more use cases we've seen our artists & marketers have success with, for more inspiration: http://blog.getsharesquare.com/wild/how-to-use-qr-codes-for-event-marketing/
