the gap between 1995 & 1999 is significant. Liquid Audio, & eMusic were around, and the whole notion of a download store was invented... Liquid went public and was quite successful for awhile. Liquid also pioneered the use of the aac encoder which apple later adopted.

Somewhat haphazardly.

Why do you ask?

If it's cause some of your comments were being treated as spam by the system and not showing up, I don't know what to tell you other than Typepad changed their spam filter to a new company and now lots of legitimate comments keep being marked as spam.

Including mine.

The dawn if the digital music era between 1998 and 2001 is missing some crucial names. The most glaring omission is eMusic who pioneered the commercial digital music space, selling the first unencrypted digital album by a major artist, Black Francis, in June of 1998 and then launching the first all you can eat subscrition service in 2000. Apple mmodelled much of the dos and donts of it's licensing strategy directly from eMusic.


What does Snapchat have to do with music tech?!
