"THE CONVERSATION CONTINUED..." (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, August 26 2009 - Recently, the Dubroom published a conversation between online artist David Pablo and myself. A long conversation, but nevertheless read by many people who have something to do with the Online (DUB) Reggae Artist Community.
The conversation continued on the Dubroom Message Boards, where it quickly became of the most read threads.
Not surprisingly, though: it's an exchange between two -at times- opposing views, who do agree over the fact that Reggae Music must be promoted.
This exchange could provide the reader with some inspiration or reasonings for the many changing times and things currently taking place within the Online (DUB) Reggae Artist Community.
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
