Thoughts on "Ignore Everybody"

Derek Sivers of CD Baby fame sent out a bunch of copies of Hugh MacLeod's Ignore Everybody to his musician friends, so that Derek could hear what other musicians thought about the book and how they'd applied Hugh's ideas.

When Derek announced his plan, I pointed him to a post that I'd already written in response to Hugh's book.

Today, Derek published the results of the project on his blog and included a link to my blog post. This is pretty cool for me, 'cuz I've been reading Derek's writings on music and business for over ten years. He's always full of practical, applicable wisdom and seems very down to earth for such a successful guy. And I really, really dig how he gave away his massively successful company to charity.

Thanks, Derek!
