Watch #BrandsConf LIVE

Interesting day, today. I’ll be speaking at a conference, and you can watch it live. My topic: “The Humanization of the Hit Song,” in which I’ll try to explain the relationship between mythology in music and the open-source environment of the Web. It’s a short speech, but I’m always a little edgy when the guitar isn’t in my hand. Here’s the info: Starting today at 9:00 AM EST / 1500 CET the second BrandsConf will be broadcast LIVE from the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Today we will be spending the day exploring “The Humanization of Brands” This event can be seen on UStream over at: http://www.ustream.tv/nyc140conf (subscribe to get notified when we are broadcasting) Hours: BrandsConf will be broadcast from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM EST today. This year we have 60+ speakers joining us in New York City at the conference. The hashtag for this conference is: #BrandsConf. I hope you can join in the online discussion about the event.

Thanks for Downloading “You Could Be Anywhere”/ Tell Us Why on the Podcast

Wow. What a week. I want to thank you for downloading “You Could Be Anywhere” for free on Bandcamp – it’s a special song for me, and it’s great to see it being appreciated. A lot of people have been checking the song out since it’s been on MTV’s “Teen Mom” – some are using it at memorial services and telling us how it captures their feelings about losing/being apart from someone special. I would like to dedicate an episode of my podcast to these stories, and I’d love you to contribute. You can remain confidential if you like, or give information like: name, location, who he/she may have left behind, or even where to send wishes or contributions on behalf of someone lost. You can send written responses to info@errico.com, or if you just want to record your remembrance into your phone, you can send us the file, and we’ll include it in the podcast. Thanks again, I’m so glad you find the song important, too....
