(BURRISS)&nbsp; --&nbsp; All the way back in 1811 a movement began in England which lent its name to people who are accused of being opposed to technological developments: Luddites. So serious was the movement that it was a death penalty offense for anyone convicted of destroying lace-making machinery.<br><br> So, at the risk of sounding like a Luddite, I have to say, “I told you so.”<br> Mon, 24 Sep 2012 15:00:54 +0000 Dr. Larry Burriss 16007 at http://wmot.org Burriss on Media: Vinyl & CDs Topspin CEO, Founder Speaks at MTSU http://wmot.org/post/topspin-ceo-founder-speaks-mtsu <p>&nbsp;Music media guru Ian Rogers was in Murfreesboro last night to give a presentation at Middle Tennessee State University.</p><p>&nbsp;The CEO and founder of Topspin, talked about launching his music media career, the music industry, and what it takes to succeed.</p><p>Rogers built his first online community during the early 1990s while running a fan site for the music group, &quot;The Beastie Boys.&quot;</p><p>Now, 20 years later, he runs the leading direct-to-consumer marketing and retail software outlet for recording artists.</p> Fri, 11 Nov 2011 17:37:50 +0000 Mike Osborne 3824 at http://wmot.org
