Sean Parker wrote a lengthy four-page email to Spotify’s Daniel Ek and Shakil Khan in August 2009.It was just released. Parker’s main points are:

  • You guys are awesome
  • I wish I had invested
  • You’re at least as great as Napster
  • Lock up an exclusive Facebook integration music deal with Mark Zuckerberg, but wait until you have more leverage. Facebook has already passed on iTunes and LaLa.
