I think these cultures will complement each other. While Maria Carey might have huge visibility in mainstream media, she has only a few thousand "friends" in MySpace. Whereas musicians that are obscure in the offline world may have tens or hundreds of thousands of fans within online communities.

I think the only thing that will change is the nature of the struggle for popularity. It is also not easy to tour with a limited budget or get airplay. And even if you have made it and signed with a major label, there's still that 1:10 number when it comes to positive vs. negative cash-flow.
