Horace Trubridge

The most interesting thing about the mainstream media reportage on the Spotify artist royalty debate is that in all the coverage I have read there has been hardly any reference to what the main problem is. The main problem is certainly not what Spotify pays the record companies and publishers... The problem here is what the record companies pass on to the artists.

At SXSW 2008, Foursquare was the star attraction. With a rapidly growing user base suggesting it was the first to crack the solomo enigma, it was on track to be a social giant. However a lack of product innovation has resulted in a steady decrease in users, and with only $2m revenue generated last year has led to some disgruntled shareholders.

Political parties have never had so few members in Britain. To illustrate the sheer scale of change in offline political activism, consider this: in 1951, the combined membership of Labour and Conservatives was above four million, by 2010 it fell below 400,000. One potential platform that remains unknown even by tech-savvy politicians is Tumblr.

Anything that disrupts the flow of money in, and money out of the business can have a devastating effect. This is particularly true for small and growing companies, since any delays in getting cash into the business could spell disaster.

Isabelle Kerr

It's an unusually sunny Saturday afternoon in Battersea Park, and I am taking deep breaths to stop myself from hyperventilating. I have just dropped my iPhone. My uninsured life support, with a not-too-shabby price tag of £600, has transformed into a pile of broken glass and chipped plastic mixed amongst gravel on the pavement. Someone might as well have just hit me. Did I really just say that? Yes, yes I did.
