Will the lack of accountability be the downfall of the Open Music Economy?

It seems that online music distribution has become a viable factor in the 2005 mainstream music industry. Most serious musicians recognize the value of having a website these days.

I am taking a different approach to the Musings in Cb column these days due to the fact that my own performance schedule has become an active one offline. I still write, but not with the frequency that I once did when the column started here in 2001 and I had just moved back home to the Kansas City area.
