Music Discovery Deathmatch at SXSW

Tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11:30 AM, Anthony Volodkin (creator of the Hype Machine) and I will go head-to-head for 60 minutes in front of a live (and probably hostile crowd) at SXSW for a panel called “Help! My iPod thinks I’m emo” .   Anthony and I disagree about many things related to  music discovery and recommendation but we do agree on one thing.  Current music recommendation is mostly crap.  In this session, I’ll be talking about music discovery innovation coming from the researchers, while Anthony will be talking about the new ideas coming from those in the front-lines – the next generation music startups.  We have two very different perspectives on the future of music discovery. This will be fun.

    Oh, that’s sounds totally interesting. Any chance the audio will be recorded / podcast?

    They should be video recording it … so we shall see. Of course you can follow the tweets for the instant audience feedback: #sxswemo
