If it could happen to EMI...

EMI, the last British music recording giant, has just been sold and asset-stripped -- without a murmur of protest. (For more information see this link )

EMI has gone the way of all stragglers in a cultural revolution. Its collapse was probably inevitable. They were always several steps behind other music companies - the last to embrace 33rpm records, the last to embrace CDs - and their internet download facility is, frankly, rubbish compared to the likes of i-Tunes.

It occurs to me to wonder if our churches also remain stragglers in the cultural revolution. What will our collapse deprive Britain of?

What can we learn from the collapse of EMI?
