Acting like a lost child, Universal Music Group CEO Doug Morris explains why the record industry dropped the ball
on keeping up with the innernector age:
"There's no one in the record industry that's a technologist," Morris explains. "That's a misconception writers make all the time, that the record industry missed this. They didn't. They just didn't know what to do. It's like if you were suddenly asked to operate on your dog to remove his kidney. What would you do?"
Oh, bravo. What gets my goat is that Doug has been CEO since 1995 and, for example, I'm pretty sure there were commercials for IBM back then, just as there are now. IBM, a giant hundred-year-old company that helps businesses adapt in the technology age. Nevermind that I have a very hard time believing that there were no "technologists" working in his company at the time.
This sounds like a complete cop out to me and makes me wonder why he still has a job instead of a ginormous severance package.
