Greetings, FMC fans! Future of Music Summit 2012 is fast approaching; it’s all happening on November 13, just one week after election day.

It’s been a wild spring for your loyal FMC’ers, and things are hardly slowing down as the temperatures go up.

The picture is incredibly complex, but we’ve been doing our best to break down the research into meaningful (and comprehensible) chunks.
