The Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics meeting
Making real change for musicians with open source. We'll start by taking a look at some of the nuances of making a living as a musician, dispelling some myths about how the industry works and what is and is not working for artists today. Then we'll move on to specifics of what CASH Music is doing (along with a lot of friends) to improve things for artists with transparent models, education, and open source technologies.
