A funny thing happened on the internet last week. On Sunday, an NPR’s “All Songs Considered” intern named Emily White wrote an intriguing post called I never owned any music to begin with. Miss White is 20 years old and missed the milestone when we changed how we acquire music. In the post, she speaks of having 11,000 songs, despite only having purchased 15 cds.
In the short post two things jumped out at me.
“…I honestly don’t think my peers and I will ever pay for albums. I do think we will pay for convenience.”
