MyGigNet is a community-driven music initiative, for now, a storyboard for the many directions of musical conversation. It is becoming a seamless representation of the physical musical world, where applications reflect real areas of interest, endeavor, and enterprise -- venues, studios, agencies/management -- they interface and connect via the integrity of the relationships that point to them.

The music industry is rife with bad example/influence on our productive lives. Industry emphasis is product-driven; MyGigNet is process oriented. Why? Because this speaks to the heart of relational integrity and how the dots get connected to create a real music infrastructure, one that's pertinent and personally or professionally useful.

You can't be a teacher without curriculum or student. You can't be a band member without other players. You can't be a performer without an audience. You can't get ahead by being independent. You need others to complete the point of it all.

What makes a gig? Two things: a place for expression and for connection. MyGigNet seeks to create the gig -- student, teacher, sound man, engineer, organization, program, therapist, aficianado, club owner, manager -- that benefits both individual and community, immediate and residual, out of our own process-driven efforts.

Let everyone else fight over shrinking, product-oriented territory, presuming we are or want to be professionals and, if not, that we need lessons. Our success will come from building our own site, according to our own needs. Since we build it, we own it, not Rupert Murdoch or Mark Zuckerberg.

What do you know or do. How can you help? What do you need? Bring it here and let's talk.
