This could be due to:

* compare the number of indie labels that we have today with the number 10+ years ago and the comparison should show that
there´s about a zillion of them today and not so many yesterday

* in connection with the above: the general fragmentation of the music scene (and culture and society in general) into smaller
and smaller units (microsound:) makes things more unfocused and generally difficult for the consumer; then there´s the CD-R
thing etc.

Just a couple of unfocused points on the last day of the millenium (now, this *is* the last day of the millenium, right?).

Have a happy one, everyone.
