MySpace The Phenomenon

Wired magazine has a great article titled “The Hit Factory” about the rise of MySpace. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the huge community website, it receives more hits than Google, and has become the internet version of MTV, launching thousands of indie bands without a major label. It’s an interesting look into the future of the music industry – as listeners avoid television, radio, and store albums – instead looking to the internet and word of mouth to find new music.
