Music on the mobile

I had a small slap in the face today in that it was 10 years ago I switched out of working for an ISP to working for a digital music company – PressPlay. That move was the right one but simply at the wrong time. Apple and the iPod was the true catalyst for digital music and after a rapid-fire decade, the next great switch onto the mobile platform is almost with us – especially if you’re outside the US.

To be working at a telecoms company at this moment in time is amazingly exciting. There’s a big wave coming and we’re about to start a ride that should be in equal part terrifying and wonderful.

Good little piece from FastCompany sums it up.
