A couple of months ago I gave a talk at NerdNite Boston entitled “What Albums and Lattes Have in Common: Consumer Psychology and the Music Business.” In it, I got to talk about all sorts of behavioral economics-y stuff and explain how economists’ findings are relevant to both independent artists and people on the business side of the music industry.
In addition, this was my first foray into HD video, but the quality is still not great due to the lighting…I guess I should have been better prepared for this, given that NerdNite is held in a bar. (I should have also known to wear a more flattering outfit, but I really like the concept of the shirt.) Lesson learned. Anyway, without further ado…

Yep, right where it belongs.
