Idea for hurting corporations and gaining "mind share"
29 Aug 2001
this is just an idea i have been working on. it could be very successful and help not only local shops but also the undergorund music scenes.
It occured to me, here in boston we are going to have a larg influx of college students very shortly. Infact it's already started. Most of the students have no clue whats where. They are going to find places like record stores and clothing stores from advertisements, very rarely will anyone tell them where a small record shop is unless they ask. My idea is not to wait until they ask. Why not compile maps of local, independantly owned stores around the various campuses. Create our own informational packages, with our own bent?
