So much music, so little time

Clive on Learning

I am currently reading David Jennings' excellent new book Net, Blogs and Rock 'n' Roll , which analyses how consumers discover music online. In the meantime, the book has got me thinking about my relationship to music and about how music and learning interact. I have been keenly interested in music all my life. In the last ten years I have devoted a great deal of time to composing and recording music, mainly alone, sometimes with colleagues.

The (Initial) iPad Experience

Clark Quinn

Which isn’t to say that I didn’t have a case of techno-lust; I am a geek, a boy who loves his toys. I made a mistake and synched everything (all photos, music, etc) when I really just wanted the limited set I had on the iPhone, but I was able to rectify that. I’m usually a late adopter of new technology, largely because I’m frugal. I don’t like to spend money until I know just what the value is that I will be getting.
