Watching these videos, I was:
- surprised by how few people were in the audience.
- surprised why someone from CNN moderated the panel.
- surprised why no music tech folk were on the panel (ie Last.fm, Pandora, Hype Machine, Grooveshark, Spotify…)
- surprised even more why Jared Leto was there. Granted he’s in a band, it’s like putting Michael Jordan on a panel about baseball.

Anyways, I have to happy a little bit. The fact that the GRAMMY’S are acknowledging the Internet and the potential to monetize money online is a huge step in the right direction. Next year my goal is to have SoundCtrl curating this panel to make sure it’s done right!
