T-Bone Burnett Responds to Jawflapping

One of the highlights of the Future of Music Conference was "Greg Kot in conversation with T. Bone Burnett." Among other jewels, T. Bone said that the Internet is a "degraded medium" and that mp3s should be free if only because they sound so awful that the only thing they are good for is promotion. Immediately cries of "Dinosaur!", "Privilege!", and "Luddite!" rang out around the conference, as if he had personally attacked every single person there.

Today, the gadfly himself chose to respond via comments on Greg's blog. Mr. Burnett does not back down, but does ask for understanding of his position in support of music, sound, and musicians. Read here.
