See & Do - The music city of Atlantis September 27 2006
Not much in life is better than doing exactly what you want. The hard part is figuring out how to get there.

A few interesting sessions include "Marketing Guerilla Style," about using online communities such as YouTube.com and MySpace.com to market yourself; "Tour Your Van Off," on tour planning; and "DJs Pool Panel: the Mixtape Connection," which examines the trend of self-produced mix tapes to create major-label opportunities.
