Hello from your friends at Future of Music Coalition! Is it the dog days of summer yet? What does that even mean, exactly? All we know is that it’s hot as hell here in D.C., and it isn’t because we’re close to one of Dante’s infernal rings. At least we don’t think that’s the reason. Despite the heat, we’ve been keeping busy: read on for all things FMC, including early-bird registration for Summit 2011!
Here at FMC, we shifted straight from fireworks and BBQ to some very exciting work: planning the 2011 Future of Music Policy Summit! Along with Summit information, we’ve got a brief update on all things FMC.
Here at FMCHQ, we’re getting our summer vacations in now before we start producing the awesomeness that will be Policy Summit 11. In keeping with vacation mode, we’ve got a quick (really!) newsletter to keep you current on all things FMC.
We’ve got quite the pep in our step lately. Maybe it’s the warm weather and cherry blossoms. Could be the narrow avoidance of a government shutdown. Probably all of the above plus the exciting stuff we’ll tell you about in this here newsletter. Read on for the full skinny on what we’ve been up to and what’s on deck for FMC and friends.
Looking forward to spring? We are too, and not just because of the cherry blossoms here in DC. FMC is gearing up for a busy season, with events and other goings-on that we’re excited to tell you all about. So let’s skip the long introduction and get right to it…
It’s all Summit all the time here at FMCHQ, as it should be. The 10th Anniversary Future of Music Policy Summit has gotten thrice as awesome since our last newsletter; read on for details on the can’t-miss music conference of 2010 (and a few other things).
Happy spring! FMC is rolling right along with our first big event of 2010 — DC Policy Day takes place at New America Foundation right here in Washington on May 25. Can’t make it to DC? We’ll also be hosting an interactive live webcast of the entire event. Read on for details on Policy Day 2010 and more.
We're finally dug out from Snowmageddon, and have returned to FMC's DC headquarters after a week of precipitation-imposed exile. We're glad to be back, because there are no snow days at the intersection of music, technology, policy and law. Read on for we've been up to between the flurries.
Lots of stuff to report this month, from exciting Policy Summit 2009 additions to developments at the FCC and action on Capitol Hill on key issues that affect musicians. Read on for your monthly dose of music-technology-policy, available without prescription.
