Welcome to the Janis Ian Store!

This article (in which Janis correctly forecasts iTunes and the advent of anew paradigm) was originally published on August 1, 2002 as a follow-up to The Internet Debacle.

Shortly after "The Internet Debacle" and "Fallout" were published, iTunes was announced. The success of iTunes has more than justified the stance taken in both of these articles.

In an article she wrote, Hilary Rosen speculated that Janis Ian wrote "The Internet Debacle" in order to gain publicity for her new album. However, no new Janis Ian album was in the works, let alone about to be released. The next Janis Ian album was not released until August 2003, a full year after the article first appeared.
