How a movement starts – tech drivers from @chr1sa

Punk’s enabling technologies.

4 track cassette mixer – TEAC. A desktop recording studio “in one box”.

Photocopying eg Kinkos. Make media, zines, marketing.

Indie labels as “companies”. Businesses.

Catalog buying and mail order. Long tail merchandising.
