supporting artists

it looks like they might be giants (of all people) have finally caught on to what (i think) is a positive step toward the future of music distribution. they've opened they're own music store. that's right. owned and operated by the artists. they're selling DRM-free mp3's of a couple albums online - directly.

blake and i have discussed a couple times, that this would be an awesome outlet for netjuke. i hope more and more artists will realize the power they can have with this approach (and i hope that netjuke becomes their platform of choice). it's been a long time since i've listened to any they might be giants... but i think i'll buy an album based on principle. :)
