- Help each community better understand the other;
- Help find a practical and workable system which offers artists fair remuneration in exchange for access to material by fans; and
- Help set the agenda for discussions about the role P2P can play within the emergent digital record industry.
For me, nothing has changed and as I say here, “before I do anything else, I’d like to thank him for having the courage to get involved in the first place”, going on >>>
It took some doing.
Without him there wouldn’t be an a2f2a.com.
For what it’s worth, I don’t believe he’s misreprested himself or ‘played’ any of us in any way. His view are his views, right or wrong, and I’m genuinely sorry he’s decided they’re not compatible with ours.
Let’s leave it at that.
So, Billy, thanks.
IMHO, a2f2a is close to getting over its teething problems and I’d definitely like to see it continue. It’s the only web site committed to giving fans and artists a way to talk with each other and help each other and it has a future.
What do you think?
My host in Belgium, Cliff Haerden of multibox.be, has agreed to add a2f2a to the p2pnet server which is, to say the least, extremely generous of him.
Some a2f2a.com members will have signed up because of Billy’s presence and now he’s no longer a part of the project, may want to leave. If that’s you, please contact me privately and in confidence at p2pnet @ shaw dot ca and I’ll immediately delete you from the list.
Otherwise, stay tuned.
More to come …
