SoundCloud is great for music lovers, not just music makers.

The 5 Ws and an H prove their lasting usefulness -- in this case as tools for creating content requirements.

Wait, where do I click for more information about the horrors of using "click here"? There's no "click here" to tell me! Now I'll never know.

It's easy to forget what buying digital music was like 10 years ago. The experts I interviewed for this had some great insights, and it was fun to take a walk down memory lane. No wonder piracy flourished -- the music industry wouldn't give people what they wanted until Apple forced the issue.

Some cool ways to listen to music through apps. Definitely check out the free Delaware Re<ords app.

Wondering whether to ditch Pandora for Spotify Radio? I say stay with Pandora -- for now.

I like what Internet Summit is doing -- the sessions are structured well and topics are relevant. Look forward to attending next year, and thanks for asking me to speak this year!

I'll be presenting at the Internet Summit preconference in Raleigh on Nov. 15. Topic: Maximizing the Impact of Content. I'm currently toying with meteor metaphors ; )

Hope to see you there. Chime in if you are attending and have topics you'd like me to cover.
