Over the last 15 years, the internet has changed the world of writers, filmmakers and musicians for both good and bad. Illegal downloading and file sharing have decimated music sales, while some authors are claiming that the internet is making writing as a career impossible. Meanwhile other artists are using the internet to connect with a bigger fan base and boost opportunities for work. Author John Boyne, musician Julie Feeney and Birch Hamilton, founder and director of the Digital Biscuit expo join us for a discussion.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0312/601727-today-with-sean-o-rourke-wednesday-12-march-2014/?clipid=1506717
