OpenMusicMedia Toronto #3 – Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

OpenMusicMedia Toronto #3 – Location, Location, Location:

The date is now set for the next OpenMusicMedia here in Toronto on Wednesday May 12th, 2010 – (note the new venue – C’est What on Front St. E)

We are pleased that Jonas Woost will be joining us from Vancouver where he will kick off the discussion about music and  location based services and the role these services will have on the music industry, in particular supporting local music. He will share with us  examples of services like Foursquare, Songkick.com Soundtrckr.com and Last.fm which could be used by artists, advertisers and fans for social/music discovery, advertising and commerce purposes.

From here, the discussion is wide open and we encourage you to share with us from your perspective as a fan, artist, label, radio station or technologist what you think of these services, which one’s you like and the type of features that are important to you that would enhance your enjoyment of music. We also can’t forget to consider the role and influence that radio can still have when focused on the local music scene.
