Startups and change makers leveraging music and music technology to curate a more creative world.
Good Morning!
This week our update focuses a lot on some pretty major changes in the streaming area of the music industry.
It’s rumored Led Zeppelin is going to launch their own streaming service from some trademark application info. Artist specific streaming services with just their catalog are an interesting model not a lot of bands have explored.
Another blockchain startup is building a token and a streaming service.
SiriusXM finally finished their acquisition of Pandora (no one saw that coming *cough*). The article below has an interesting take on how this will allow them to maybe become the first full stack music company.
Facebook is still shady and showing your page info to people you don’t want to give access to.
Have a great weekend!

After Buying Pandora, Will SiriusXM Make a Deal for Live Nation? | Billboard

Last week, I ran an ad on Facebook that was targeted at a computer science professor named Alan Mislove. Mislove studies how privacy works on social networks and had a theory that Facebook is letting advertisers reach users with contact information collected in surprising ways. I was helping him test the theory by targeting him in a way Facebook had previously told me wouldn’t work. I directed the ad to display to a Facebook account connected to the landline number for Alan Mislove’s office, a number Mislove has never provided to Facebook. He saw the ad within hours.   •   Share
