2286 Cedar St.
Berkeley, California 94709

Given the invasion of music sharing technologies introduced by
Napster, MP3 and Liquid Audio in the 90's, and the wildfire adoption of the iPod cum iTunes, a new crop of digital music companies (and some old ones) are finding new ways to provide us tunes without losing their shirts in the process.

Shedding some light on new ways to make listeners pay to play are Gerd Leonhard, author of "The Future of Music"; Tom Conrad, CTO of Pandora; Ann Greenberg, cofounder of ION, which was sold to Gracenote; Brian Zisk, founder and board member of the Future of Music Coalition; and Amy Tobin, singer, composer, and multimedia show producer.

Moderator is Andrew Keen, producer of the podcast site
www.aftertv.com {http://www.aftertv.com/}, and author of ?The Great Seduction,? to be published in 2007 and named after Keen?s eponymous blog.

$15 at the door includes dinner, drinks, and salon.

The Hillside Club, a century-old community club originally designed by Bernard Maybeck, is located on 2286 Cedar Street, between Spruce and Arch Streets, in Berkeley. Take the University exit from Highway 880, go north on Shattuck, and then east on Cedar. It?s a 10-minute walk from downtown Berkeley BART.
