In today’s digital world, entrenched incumbents from the past are still bumbling around, getting in the way of creativity. We see music labels get in the way of artists and listeners, internet service providers purposely keeping speeds limited. At the same time, we have had an influx of new organizations, thinkers, and users take the helm in developing platforms to facilitate a direct form of creativity and consumption. Whether its through organizations like CASH Music, or the new crowdfunded websites such as Kickstarter or indiegogo, the internet has also allowed creators of any size to have a chance at a global impact. In this panel, we’ll discuss the ancient incumbents and explore the impact of their gatekeeping. Sponsored by Glen Echo Group.
