    MIDEM Music Hackday 2013

    Posted in by Adam Rogers on 29 January 2013

    This year I participated in the MIDEM Music Hackday. It was a great experience!

    This is the third year the event has been run, but the first time I've participated in a hackday. I attended MIDEM last year and thoroughly enjoyed myself, but as an introverted hacker at heart, I was happy to spend a chunk of my time this year out of the way of synergies, ARPUs and (most of) the biz-dev stuff, focusing instead on hacking away at an idea I've been toying with on and off for the last year or so.

    That idea materialised at the hackday in the form of "Mouzu". It's a pretty simple idea. In it's essence, Mouzu sets out to answer the question "what kind of music do you listen to?" - a question I like to ask people when I meet them, and one that more often than not yields the wholly unsatisfactory response "a little bit of everything". Really? Everything? Swedish Death Metal, Trad Jazz and Nosia? I think not.

So, what can we expect to see from the exponential curve of technological progress in 2013?

    How Mint is changing

    Mint

    I went to see my old pal Stephen Hardingham at Channel 4 last week. Before the meeting he said: "You could tell us about how things are going at Mint Digital these days."

    2008-2012

    This called for a short presentation. I hadn't seen Stephen in about 4 years, so here’s how Mint has changed since then.
