This is a one paragraph outline for a term paper that I am doing for my Journalism class.

I have decided that my subject for my term paper will be focused on the future of music and the ways in which this will affect the recording industry as times goes on. With the advent of such technologies as mp3 music files, as well as the newfound love affair with all things iPod, I feel like there will be a good amount of current data to research. I also feel like this is a subject that will affect my generation in a very important manner. We have grown up through the internet, and will continue to do so as we age. Along with this, we will begin to become internet consumers of music, a process which has already begun. Songs and albums can be bought through such services as iTunes, where you can pay through credit card and download them directly to your PC. Although I do not believe these services will ever spell the end of the recording industry, they will nonetheless have a huge impact on the ways in which we, as consumers, come to obtain music. This subject is one that I am looking forward to investigating, and I believe that I will be able to find out more about my generation and the way we think and act concerning the music industry.
