Well, my friend and fellow artist Kristin Hersh and I launched a new endeavor called CASH Music (Coalition of Artists and Stake Holders) this week that got some coverage in WIRED. I’ll fill you in with more details later as we’ve just barely scratched the surface with the site, but for now you can dig into Creative Commons, which we’ve embraced as a framework for our coalition.
