A lightbulb moment

I just had the best idea ever! And I’m pretty sure that this time, I’m on the right track.

I realized that I am “connected” to the independent music scene right here in Melbourne. I can definitely write up something about the independent music community and their struggle with getting local support and exposure, or something along those lines.

Of course, I will have to think of a specific issue to focus on, but right now I have a few issues off the top of my head that I know will make an interesting documentary. And I definitely will have more than enough sources to interview, and will be able to do a video documentary, which would have been difficult if I’d gone with my previous option, journalism :\

As for now, I am feeling delighted. I will blog more about this once I have settled on a specific issue!

Articles to read later on to aid in my research:
The Sydney Morning Herald on “Net Neutrality”
Wikipedia on Independent Musicians
LiveWireStyle on an independent musician’s use of online radio
