Bandcamp as a Platform for Artists
Bandcamp is 10 years old this year, and I've been thinking about how prevalent it's been in my own creative life and how many of my music-making friends have been able to easily distribute their work (in digital, cassette, CD, and vinyl forms) thanks to its long-standing support of independent artists. Now, with excellent products like the Bandcamp Weekly podcast and brand-new iOS and Android apps, it's continuing to maintain its place as a superb source for music.

I think it's time to look back in depth on what Bandcamp has done for artists and how their particular Open Web-centric priorities have made it possible. For my next column, I'm outlining Bandcamp's history at large, and I'd like to include some sentiments from creative friends about their experiences and for that, I need your help.
