(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Hypebot, the blog published by booking agency Skyline Music, which chronicles how technology is revolutionizing music marketing and distribution, has been named to CNET News.com's Blog 100 top technology blogs. CNET editors call Hypebot an "excellent chronicle of how the music world is responding to the digitization of its industry, from satellite radio to flash memory."
The Blog 100 is designed to help CNET News.com's readers find the best of the best in the crowded blogosphere. "With more than 14 million blogs in existence and another 80,000 being created each day, how is a person supposed to find the ones worth reading?", asks CNET. "That is the question CNET News.com is attempting to answer with our first Blog 100 list."
"Hypebot started as our attempt to stay on top of a rapidly evolving music marketplace, but now it's evolving into a 'must read' compendium of information and commentary on how technology is shaping the future of the music industry," states Bruce Houghton, Hypebot publisher and Skyline Music president. Updated continuously, Hypebot can be read at www.hypebot.com.
Hypebot is only a part of Skyline Music's commitment to helping their agency clients and other artists stay on the cutting edge of new technologies, says Houghton. Other initiatives launching before year's end include Skyline Digital, designed to help artists utilize online promotion to grow their fan base and a re-launching of AudioSkyline, an eclectic AAA Internet broadcast stream. — Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
