Can Social Music Save the Music Industry?
    Can making the musical experience more social and shareable help the music industry survive? The degree to which any new digital music company will be successful will be based on their ability to engage people. Music is a social construct, and while people still sit at home listening to music alone, they are more likely to share their music experiences if given the tools.
    The cloud has enabled people to do much more with music from interacting with the art, songs, and ephemera around their music, to being able to create their own content and layers around their music discoveries.
    Will rich social functions - discovery, visualization, playlists, interactivity, maybe even game aspects, coupled with ease of use around multiple connected devices (i.e., go seamlessly from computer to phone to car to living room), find enough success to save the music industry?
    This panel will investigate the different social and interactivity tools the music industry can use to add to their bottom line.
