Free as in GAAAAAAAHHHHH. [Aug. 28th, 2007|10:39 am]
Lindsey Kuper

I tried and tried to change my ill-fated MySpace profile to a "band profile", and it wasn't happening. Yesterday, I gave up and finally deleted it and made a new one. Hi, I play music. I keep trying to give it away, but for those of you who don't subscribe to podcasts, and I can't say I blame you, now you can hear it in gorgeous 96kbps.

I also put my Thursday show on there. Oh, I have a show on Thursday, at Amariah anonamyst's store. What's the done thing for time-sensitive event information dissemination? I'd announce it on my mailing list, but both of the subscribers live in Japan.

In the future, this won't suck.

irony warning

If there's anything that cyberpunk has taught me, it is that the future will suck in pretty much all the same ways, on higher orders of magnitude, but we'll all have fiber-optic clothing, colorful living tattoos, and interplanetary imaginary friends.

Is that what the kids are using these days? I just found out my show got postponed until next month, anyway, so I can put off getting organized, too.

upcoming.org
eventful.com
loudisrelative.com (a Portland-based company, I think)
maybe going.com (okay so I've never actually used it but maybe I know someone who works there)
and the facebook.

Did I misinterpret Baratunde's message?

Do you have a favorite?

Also, I definitely read that as maybegoing.com, which, if it existed, would be the time-sensitive event information dissemination tool of choice for people like jes5199.

Whether I have a favorite is nearly irrelevant, since I don't actually go to things. I am lobbying for our next antisocialnetwork project at work to be stayingathometonight.com, a less moderate companion to maybegoing.com. But what organizers tell me (though granted, I talk more to conference organizers than show organizers) is that each of these places has its own community, so if you want to reach a broad audience, you hit all of them.

Do you need me to translate the mailing into Japanese?

I can do that. It won't be good, but I can do that.
