What does the Greatful Dead and Baidu have in common? Can you believe it is file sharing…

…for those who are interested in seeing what happened at Web 2.0 conference this past week, click here to view the “underground video” directed and produced by Alexander Muse, entrepreneur and part-time venture capitalist with M | Ventures. It is actually quite funny…

…also, if you are interested in reading about some of the interesting conversations that went on at the conference click to its blog, such as (thanks by Niall Kennedy) what former Greatful Dead (one of my all time favorite bands) drummer, Mickey Heart, has to say about file sharing…er…I wonder what Baidu would say about this?

Mickey Hart on file sharing

Mickey Hart, former drummer for the Grateful Dead, is on stage at Web 2.0 right now and making a whole lot of sense. Jeff Mallet from SNOCAP, a digital licensing and copyright management company is also part of the discussion panel to represent the paid model. Some choice quotes from Mickey:

“[The fans] didn’t steal it, we gave it away”

“If we ever make a good album, they’ll buy that.”

“I’ve probably been recorded more than anyone else.”

“We played in the park and we always played better when we played free. I think it’s a good thing to share and give people something. Whets their appetite too…if they go to the trouble to bring a machine and tape it, they should have it.”
