One of the things that has come out of my visit to Brazil has been the opportunity to discuss my research into Fora do Eixo and talk about the relationship between the academic work (which can take years to publish) and the work I do for Music in the Digital Age, which publishes immediately, as I write it.
In this discussion, recorded at the conference in Brasilia, Fabricio Nobre points out the reasons why this knowledge needs to be disseminated quickly as well as accurately. This is a timely topic.
If nothing else – this has motivated me to get to work on this section of the book… perhaps even before I go further on the copyright section. We’ll see how that goes.
In the meantime, I’d be interested in your thoughts on this discussion. Lots to go through here…
