Speaker: Nancy Baym
Social media have enhanced and transformed the relational environments in which many creators work. Musicians, whose work is easily shared through means both authorized and unauthorized are on the forefront of changes in social and business models around digital markets, and, more importantly, at the forefront of the ways that economic contexts are increasingly infused with interpersonal relational communication.
This talk draws on interviews with approximately 40 musicians (mostly from the US, UK and Europe), most of whom are independent, and most of whom had audiences prior to the advent of Myspace in 2002 in order to identify the kinds of social and economic values at play and understand how they influence one another. Rather than seeing social in contrast to economic value, this talk considers how they are related.
Nancy Baym is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts and a Visiting Professor of Comparative Media Studies/Writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She has written about fan/artist relationships, online audience community, digital media and personal relationships, and qualitative methods for internet research. She is the author of Personal Connections in the Digital Age (Polity Press, 2010), Internet Inquiry: Conversations about Methods (co-edited with Annette Markham, Sage 2009), and Tune In, Log On: Soaps, Fandom and Online Community (Sage, 2000) as well as dozens of articles and book chapters.
