Luckily, I've had the chance to meet up with amazing people, through giving some talks
-at the Social Media Research Collective at Microsoft Research Labs
-at dorkbot pittsburgh (review of talk & show here)
and play some AMAZING gigs (see sidebar)
And I managed to get involved in some interesting (as well as damn silly) debates online and off about music, politics, global power, ethics, taste, and law.. all that hot stuff. I decided to take it a step further and invite some of my favorite people whose voices should be heard more, to participate more formally in some of these conversations - so please vote for my proposed panels at SXSW
(featuring Chief Boima (Dutty Artz), Dj rAt (Anthology of Booty), Tina Piper (Center for Intellectual Property Policy) and me!): http://t.co/EY9WDWE & http://t.co/Xl8GImf
and shortly I hope to announce another panel featuring MORE of the most interesting and critical djs/promoters/scholars I know.
But in the meantime, Boston area peoples, come out to Beat Research on Monday the 22nd of August and hear me and DJ Refusenik throw down!
