Another Yahoo VP leaves & maybe music space will be better for it

Ian Rogers announced today that he is leaving Yahoo to become CEO of Topspin Media.  The company is co-founded by Peter Gotcher who was the co-founder of digidesign and subsequently became a VC (IVP/Redpoint) and is now a private investor.  Ian headed up Yahoo’s music and video offerings as far as I can tell.  Peter has a pretty good track record and is also an investor in Avnera where I worked.  Super smart people so I am betting some cool music offerings (unfettered by DRM) will come out of it.  Go, go, go!
