Story on MP3 blogs (1)

Something I wrote for today's NYT: Warner's Tryst With Bloggers Hits Sour Note. The story was inspired by a mention of Warner Brothers Records' recent pitches to MP3 bloggers in a roundtable discussion with the bloggers on The Morning News. The story talks about this post on Music for Robots where one or more people at Warner Brothers apparently left comments without disclosing their affiliation with the company. Related links:

I recently wrote an article on my blog entitled Nine Things that the RIAA Does not want you to know at http://thomashawk.com/2004/08/nine-things-riaa-mpaa-apple-walmartcom_12.html

Thanks for the beautiful photographs by the way! I've been stopping by your site regularly to look at them.
