Matt Mullenweg On Internet Publishing and “Owning Your Masters”

Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress, talks about the changing landscape of internet publishing. This whole interview is eye-opening in a lot of ways, but this quote really stood out to me.

“Musicians learned that you have to own your masters. We have a generation that is growing up and learning the hard way that if you don’t control your digital destiny then you are at the whim of these other parties whose business model is going to change and is likely not aligned with yours.”

Interesting to think about in the age of Facebook dominance…

What say you?
