[ I apologize for the lateness of this post — the holidays kept me busy ]
I’m pleased to announce that John Buckman of Magnatune and Bookmooch joined the MetaBrainz Board of Directors on December 13th. John is both a geek and a music lover and he embodies both of these passions with his online record label Magnatune. Given his position in the cutting edge space of online record labels and his technical background make him perfectly suited for helping out the MetaBrainz Foundation as a board member.
John replaces Joichi Ito, who has recently taken on the role of chairman of the Creative Commons. Joi is busier than ever, making it difficult for him to participate in the day-to-day operations of the MetaBrainz Foundation. Joi, just as Larry Lessig, stays on as board member emeritus in an advisory role.
Thank you for all of your help Joi and welcome aboard John!
