Ready, Set.....

Pulse at The Big Bop

consider this the beginning for real. I have completed the first week of school and I'm really pumped about thesis. Although I am definitely second guessing myself, I am continuing on.

I have narrowed down my thesis topic to Music and more specifically to solving the music piracy problem that was enabled by digital technologies. Right now I'm trying to figure out what it is am am solving. The problem is that I really want to re-design the music distribution system, however the whole point of thesis is not to know the outcome. I'm worried that by abstracting the problem and solving that that I won't be solving any real problem. We'll see! Any suggestions?

i think that in reality, a job where you're paid to solve problems can not be somewhat motivated by what it is you're particularily interested in solving or enhancing. I don't know what I can say other than I feel your pain. I bet once you start talking to bands locally and such they probably have tons of shit to say about the distribution system, and who's to say it's not worth looking into? If you feel it, then go with it.
