Hip Hop Bloggers “If I Ruled the Blogosphere” Parts I & II

By April 21, 2010 March 29th, 2011 Misc, Real Life, RIK.TV

On Saturday, April 3, Future of Music Coaltion and Words Beats & Life hosted If I Ruled the Blogosphere: Hip-Hop Bloggers and Social Change, a panel discussion that featured hip-hop bloggers such as Meka Udoh (2 Dope Boyz), Dallas Penn (Dallas Penn & the Internets Celebrities), Jason Reynolds (OkayPlayer), Frank William Miller Junior (FWMJ of RappersIKnow.com) and Chris Rabb (Afro-Netizen) talking about a host of topics, some of which included net neutrality (I wish we’d have delved into this more), the convergence of technology and independent music,

FMC will be on hand to talk about how policy shapes what the hip-hop community does, where it goes and what it says on the online. FMC will also present information that bloggers, artists, and fans can use to protect their right to free speech and entrepreneurship via the open Internet.

A question and answer/peer learning session will also take place immediately after, during which attendees will be able to network with peers, panelists and presenters.
