Jeff Tweedy is one of the most reasoned, credible, and sensible voices in the debate over the sharing of music. Certainly he's put his money where his mouth is by embracing tapers, traders, and the distribution of Wilco's music via the internet. Should be an interesting discussion.
The webcast should be available via WilcoWorld.
