Perhaps The Major Record Labels Will Discover Twitter In 2015

Wired’s Epicenter blog notes that a division of EMI has announced the first major record label blog. While it does appear to be true that this is the first such blog, the very fact that it’s only happening now is somewhat stunning. What’s even more amazing, really, is that EMI is promoting the fact that they’re so far behind the times. Yes, they beat the other three major record labels, but just starting to blog now isn’t exactly something to hype up. In fact, prior to this, I’d never even thought about the fact that the labels had no blogs — but in calling that fact out, it simply reminds everyone how the major record labels are so far behind in embracing any type of modern technology. It’s sort of like a horse and buggy manufacturer putting out a press release that it had installed telephones in its office decades after such things were common.
