At the Music Technology Summit in SF. Some lively discussions - lots of interesting people here. Major Props to Rickey Vincent for stepping up to moderate the Bay Area Funk panel - good to see the UC Berkeley Hip-Hop Studies Working Group peoples representing.. and to see actual local music being featured at a technology conference.
Local-ness being something special that can't be digitally distributed - and also supporting connections to the local community outside of Silicon Valley.
I also got a thrill because Paris just walked by.. I remember listening to his stuff back in 1991.
more to report later, I'm sure.
