New Idea: "Artist Support Button"

Speaking on a panel at the Future of Music Summit in Washington D.C. earlier this week, I was surprised at the ambivalence (at best!) of musicians towards Internet radio and the opportunities it offers them to build their fan bases and advance their careers.

After all, if you're a bluegrass artist in St. Louis or a cabaret singer in San Diego or a folk-rock act in Boston, which form of radio is going to offer the most opportunities to you -- AM/FM radio, satellite radio, or Internet radio? Obviously, I think, the latter. AM/FM and satellite radio will almost certainly give you no airplay at this point in your career (or, actually, for those first two genres, ever), whereas if Pandora includes your CD into their Music Genome Project, you'll get airplay when their listeners are listening to a station based on an artist whose music has similar characteristics to your music, AccuRadio would be happy to give you airplay on our various region-specific and genre-specific channels, and if Bill Goldsmith at Radio Paradise likes your work he might give you a great backsell after he plays your work.

But I believe there are opportunities for Internet radio to give even MORE support to developing artists than we do today (or than AM/FM or satellite radio ever will).

For example, it might benefit all parties involved if airplay for music from developing acts could be geo-targeted to the regions in which those acts are operating: If there's a bluegrass band like, say, Henhouse Prowlers that only tours in the Midwest, perhaps Internet radio stations should focus airplay of their tracks to listeners in the Midwest. (For East Coast listeners, that same slot in the hour could be given to a bluegrass brand that tours up and down the East Coast. And so forth; you get the principle.)

However, here's my idea of the day:

How about offering an "Artist Support Button" on our media players? As I envision it, this might be a 100x100-pixel button that resides near our "Play," "Pause," and "Skip" buttons or adjacent to the artist name in the "Now playing" section of our media player. (This could of course vary by webcaster.) Based on the desires of the artist being played at the moment, it could say either "Visit my website" or "Like me on Facebook" or "Catch me on tour" or "Buy this CD" or "Join my e-mail list" or "Tip the artist" and would link to the appropriate destination (And I'm envisioning that the button could be changed regularly -- e.g., "Catch me on tour" only when the artist is actually on tour.)

At the Future of Music Summit, musician Ben Weinman of the Dillinger Escape Plan said that the average fan of his band spends $100/year (including spending on concert tickets, CDs, vinyl, commemorative t-shirts for each song (!), house concerts, etc.). If we could help bands like his add new fans, the revenue potential for them could HUGE -- and it would be a win/win for everyone.

What do you think? (Have I got the germ of a good idea here?)

obat aborsi
 obat penggugur kandungan
ampuh 100% manjur obat cytotec asli cara menggugurkan kandungan secara alami
dan tuntas tanpa efek samping dan tidak mempengaruhi kehamilan berikut nya,
cocok bagi wanita yang ingin melakukan aborsi dengan kehamilan yang tidak di
inginkan contoh nya korban pemerkosaan,tuntutan kerja,dll….smoga lekas selelai
permasalah anda dengan ada nya layanan kami.

Apakah
Legal Bagi Saya Untuk Menggunakan Layanan Ini?
Kebanyakan negara memberikan izin untuk mengimpor obat dalam jumlah yang
kecil, untuk penggunaan pribadi, dan tidak untuk tujuan komersial.

Perempuan yang tinggal di negara dimana hak-hak perempuan tidak
terpenuhi dan aborsi masih dibatasi, mereka dapat mengatakan bahwa mereka
mengalami keguguran jika mereka memerlukan bantuan medis. Tanda-tanda aborsi
medis sangat mirip dengan keguguran spontan dan sangat sulit untuk dideteksi
apakah perempuan mengkonsumsi obat tertentu.

Aborsi medis pada usia awal kehamilan sangatlah aman dan efektif. Resiko
aborsi medis sangat jauh lebih rendah dibandingkan dengan resiko kehamilan dan
persalinan. Jutaan perempuan di seluruh dunia telah merasakan keberhasilan
penggunaan mifepristone dan misoprostol untuk aborsi awal kehamilan. Bahkan
obat-obat ini tidak memiliki efek jangka panjang bagi kesehatan perempuan.

Aborsi
Medis Memiliki Resiko Yang Kecil
Komplikasi serius pasca aborsi medis sangat jarang terjadi dan jikalau
terjadi dapat ditangani oleh dokter dengan penanganan kasus keguguran alami.
Kemungkinan komplikasi yang sebenarnya sangat jarang terjadi adalah adanya
pendarahan hebat (0.2%) , infeksi (kurang dari 1%) dan berlanjutnya kehamilan
(0,3% sampai usia kehamilan 9 minggu). Komplikasi ini dapat ditangani oleh
dokter dengan penanganan kasus keguguran alami. Hal ini dikarenakan kasus
keguguran alami terjadi sebanyak 15-20% dari semua kasus kehamilan dimana semua
dokter memahami bagaimana menangani kasus keguguran alami – atau aborsi medis

Aborsi
Medis Memiliki Efektivitas Yang Tinggi
Kombinasi antara Mifepristone dan misoprostol memiliki efektivitas yang
tinggi, aman, dan berterima. Aborsi yang komplit (dimana artinya perempuan
tidak perlu perawatan tambahan) dapat terjadi dengan kemungkinan 98% jika
kehamilan masih di bawah usia 9 minggu.

Kira-kira 2-5% perempuan menggunakan kombinasi mifepristone dan
misoprostol membutuhkan perawatan medis tambahan untuk menuntaskan aborsi tidak
komplit, menghentikan kehamilan yang berlanjut, atau mengontrol pendarahan.

Penggunaan misoprostol saja untuk penghentian kehamilan awal dapat
membantu aborsi hingga komplit sampai 84%.
Aborsi medis yang dilakukan pada awal kehamilan jauh lebih efektif dan
aman.

Apakah
Aborsi Saya Berhasil?
Mayoritas perempuan dapat mendeteksi apakah aborsinya berhasil atau
tidak segera setelah menggunakan obat, karena tanda-tanda kehamilan hilang
dengan cepat dan/atau beberapa perempuan mungkin melihat embrio atau kantung
kehamilan. Bahkan jika perempuan merasa ia sudah tidak lagi hamil, penting
untuk memasatikan apakah aborsi berhasil. Perempuan dapat melakukan USG setelah
aborsi medis atau melakukan testpack 3-4 minggu setelah aborsi.

Kapan
Saya Dapat Berhubungan Seks Lagi?

Untuk pencegahan infeksi, perempuan disarankan untuk menghindari
memasukkan benda apapun ke dalam vagina selama kurang lebih satu minggu setelah
aborsi medis.

Jika anda ngin membeli obat aborsi (obat penggugur kandungan) di
wilayah anda masing2 agar pesanan bisa langsung di terima anda bisa mengakseh
