How do we answer ? I've taken part in conversations suggesting that running smart contracts on localised blockchains could be a little more responsible; i.e. not treating such chains as trading platforms but as decentralised trust sources. This sorts out the digital rights side, at the cost of treating an NFT as an investment; making them kinda pointless. The deeper question is around how we value and bring value to music. And if that isn't monetarily, how else? Artists still gotta eat.

I should also mention that Rantbox is now being kept up to date on a properly syndicated podcast feed - listen to it wherever you get your podcasts!

I'm a regular guest on RantboxTV, and this time I got to share some of my knowledge on the subject of . I'm not an expert in blockchain technologies, but I think I have enough understanding to know why it doesn't gel with me. I appear in the second half to talk about some of the percieved negatives.

I intend to do research going forward on alternatives wrt smart contracts and how we value music; all input welcome!

A lot of people saying that this will be the death of London, and as a lifetime resident I kinda hope so. Corporate hellscape that it is. So many great venues and places that I used to love to visit have been closed down and turned into sanitised boring bullshit.

Well, the UK's going down the shitter politically. At least I can wake up this morning and watch salty right wingers bitch about losing a vote to a 55% majority. 👀👀👀👀

So for some reason we've suddenly spiked nearly 1k followers on tiktok over the last two days? Current count is about 1950 😱

Don't ask me, I don't get it 🙂

I don't particularly care for Kier steamer's labour, but the particularly depressing thing about their losses is quite his thoroughly the conservatives seem to be cleaning up. I'm mostly unplugged from mainstream media but their PR must be so positive right now for results like this. How else can people be looking around themselves and be saying "yep, more of this please"?

Welp, I just did my bit of democracy and voted for sadik khan. Honestly I thinkLabour are a huge mess right now but don't want to give any more ground to the conservatives.

Vote if you think it'll make a difference today. But ultimately don't think political change starts and ends at the ballot box. It barely even begins there, and has relatively minimal impacts in comparison to other political action.

Or, you know, just do you - that's also cool.

No, rantbox doesn't have an RSS feed yet, yes I'm working on it. Update on that soon!
