Dave Matthews And Technology
from the he's-everywhere dept
I’ll admit I don’t think I even know a single Dave Matthews song, so I have no idea whether or not he’s any good. However, I did find it odd that two totally seperate news organizations are running two totally separate stories of Matthews involvement with technology. First, is an MSNBC report about how the Dave Matthews Band will be running a promotion on Napster which was set up by the band without the knowledge of its label (who have decided not to challenge the move). Matthews claims that they did it because badly recorded versions of the song were already on Napster, and they thought this might help more people hear their music and maybe buy the album. Over at Techweb, there’s an even more interesting article about how the Dave Matthews Band road crew uses a wireless intranet during concerts. It’s a custom built solution using Wavelan and Airport devices.
