Alternet calls it “YouTube for smart people” and that’s kind of what Big Think is. Their music section isn’t very extensive yet but there are a number of interesting posts there, including composer John Haribson on overcoming writer’s block, Wyclef Jean on hip-hop stereotypes and Moby on advice for young artists. Plus there’s DIY threads on which rock bands are best and if Paul is really dead. I hope they keep developing the site though I also hope that they don’t think they have to restrict themselves to a small group of ‘experts.
