Becks Traditional music & the 'net generation' (38) RE: Traditional music & the 'net generation' 02 Apr 09


Well I am not technically in this timeline bracket but I do consider myself of the net generation. Born in 1980 and the now grim age of 29.

I frequently plug myself into the computer dowmoad music, search for clubsm communicate wth clubs and organisers, listen to my ipod whilst uploading stuff to my own website, whilst taking to friends on msn & facebook and checking my myspace mail and on a monday night listening in to Bishop FM online and sending emails.

I am new to this and wouldnt have started to do this unless I had the WWW (world wide web) at my fingertips. I have been playing less than a year and already getting gigs and meeting great people along the way all thanks to the internet and social networking sites many of us (including me at times) curse.

Embrace it and use it, I have only good things to say about it.
When we get to the stage of a totally virtual concert then we need to worry, I suppose they already exist in a way via YouTube and i player, but they only preserve tradition in my opinion.
