Music Exchange Workshop 23 March: Web Development and SugarMan.org

In 1997, Stephen “Sugar” Segerman set up a website, called ‘The Great Rodriguez Hunt’, with the intention of finding any information about the mysterious US musician of ‘Cold Fact’ fame. In the same year Brian Currin established ‘Climb Up On My Music’, a tribute site to the life and works of Rodriguez.

In 1998, when Rodriguez was discovered, alive and well and living in Detroit, the search was over and those two websites were combined into one central online repository for all information about Rodriguez.

Brian Currin will be holding a one-hour workshop on the various cost effective tools and platforms that musicians and music-related businesses can and should be embracing for online marketing and sales.

He is a sought-after speaker and has spoken at many conferences and workshops. Included among these are Music Exchange, Moshito Music Conference, Locksmith Association Of South Africa, Campus Of Performing Arts, Varsity Newspaper Conference (UCT) and The Academy Of Sound Engineering. His well-received presentations cover topics such as Cost Effective Web Marketing, Getting Your Brand Online, and How To Be Self-Employed.

Searching for Sugar Man or success of a different kind – Unschooling NYC

In discussions around education, we talk a lot about success. Often we talk in terms of monetary success (usually referred to as ‘financial security’ which makes it sound less greedy). Less often we refer to success in terms of happiness, fulfillment, spirituality or family; it is assumed, perhaps, that career and financial success inevitably lead to the other types of success.

Of course a lot of financially successful people are miserable in their personal lives, and on the other hand it is more difficult to appreciate the beauty of nature when you are busy wondering where your next meal will come from.

Ideas of what constitutes personal and/or financial success are so varied and individual in nature that it is difficult to speak of it in broad terms, and one of the reasons I abhor discussions in which someone tries to insist that without a 4 year degree, success is forever out of reach.
