But think about it - How many of you when you were kids wanted to be on TV? Be a singer? Write a book?
As 1999 as it may sound, the internet has allowed all of us the access to do this, to some degree, very cheaply or even free.
Major media industries are changing/crumbling, so this really might be the turning point where all of us do
Any of you familiar with the show Dragon's Den from the CBC?
The show allows entrepeneurs the chance to present their business ideas to a group of Canadian business moguls, for a portion of their company. This almost completely cuts out any 'middleman' and puts the financers face-to-face with the entrepeneurs, who are putting their own money on the table.
And what about the music industry? Well I think most would agree that Napster was the beginning of the end of that dinosaur.
Now, SliceThePie (a British site) allows everyday people - like you and me, the chance to finance artists as well as to be paid to rate music.
So my question is this - are we better for having broken down some of these walls? Do you care? What industries do you think will be transformed next?
