There are a few scattered threads trying to discuss this issue but I do not feel like there is any real progress on the problem of applying DAC power to fix the *cause* of centralization in these industries (research, music, etc).

* Replicating standard business models but without the middlemen... BitShares ME++
* Using clever consensus/market mechanisms to reward good musicians and supporters of good musicians
If we settle for the first I will be extremely disappointed...
