Thanks for providing this example, Janet. While the Radiohead album download underwhelmed me for a variety of reasons (e.g., it's potentially so much more profitable--and easier--to do this when you're a multiplatinum band), an example of someone gaining their initial fame through MySpace and then NOT signing to a label (unlike the millions of examples of bands who gained their fame the same way--e.g., Arctic Monkees--but signed to a label), is a cause for celebration of sorts. I clearly want to mute the celebration for a bit because I'm far less utopian about the possibilities than most of you are, but still, it's nice to have even a moment of muted celebration.
