Illuminati

Friend Recommendation

In the corner, blushing, you will find poisonduk, who is both a geek _and_ a woman. She's entertaining and has stories of both drunken nights out and technical work stuff. dalglir will probably find pretty much all of that interesting, the rest of you at least bits of it.

Right, I'm off to see Mama Mia with Lilian and two of her remarkably gay Eurovision-loving friends!

File Sharing

Wow. This sums up how I feel perfectly. I've said all of this before, but I love this so much I just have to post it anyway.

There are conversations to be had about the morality of file sharing, but until those stern words are able to project a "morality field" that causes those in their radius to behave honorably such dialogues fall into the "adorable but irrelevant" category. The muscular responses to the phenomenon have made it worse, and greater consumer throughput has put movies and television on the menu. The Internet represents a user definable broadcast spectrum that makes the notion of a "television network" almost incoherent. That is the actual issue obscured by this site going down or that service going under: the ice age has arrived for massive conglomerates. They can adapt to this shift, or they can become museum exhibits. Up to them.


Of course I probably feel this way largely due to an overdose of Abba and extreme tiredness...
