Incredibly well argued piece about why musicians deserve to get paid.

I mostly agree with him, but I think he mis-represented Free Culture. Good point on people being willing to pay for hardware and internet, but those are hard to get for free. Plus physical things have more perceived value than a file on your drive.

I'll admit I used to tape albums as a student, but have since spent thousands on music and concerts. Lately I've got into a few bands who sell their music via Bandcamp which mean they get most of the money.

People are getting used to getting stuff for free (once you have the hardware an connection). They can legally listen to all the music they want via various sites. Many probably use file sharing sites without even thinking about the legality.

I don't see that record companies have any special right to exist, any more than book printers, but those wanting to reach the mass market will probably keep using them.

We live in interesting times.

Doh. Carbonara. Though carbonate is funny too.

This is a really amazing, expressive data mining language for ripping through large, arbitrarily formatted data sets and doing joins across them. Now open sourced!

Interesting piece but I can't respect anyone who writes off techno and rave then thinks Coldplay and Lady Gaga are good. Or that Oasis were the second coming.

Spot on about Nickelback though.

Yup. Music was better when I was 14-18. Just like every other generation. You kids get off my lawn!
