Hi Bob:

If that's the case, then isn't the music business going to keep shrinking for quite a while? Back 
when the album was a "luxury item," wasn't the business much smaller -- and weren't those luxury 
items produced and marketed by people who knew music as opposed to lawyers and accountants?

I must say I am not as optimistic as you seem that any vestige of a "music business" will exist in 
another decade. I just hope some phoney dot-bomb doesn't end up with somebody's archives, which then 
get lost or sold for pennies to a game publisher or the like when the dot-bomb blows up.
