There’s a lot I didn’t get to say about this one, but I hope I made my feelings clear. It’s a bad law, and it’s already ineffective since not only is it possible to cover your tracks almost completely whilst file-sharing, pirates are already working on new technology – just as BitTorrent rose out of the ashes of Napster.
The sooner big media dies or gets a new business model the better. I look forward to the future where non-commercial sharing is legal and treated the same as the sneakernet.
Our 2nd Netbabble podcast is up, it’s about an hour long, if you do listen to it please feel free to leave some critically constructive feedback. I feel good about it but my voice sounds a bit nasally at first and it takes me a while to get comfortable… lots of ‘err’s and stutters in the beginning.
I personally don’t listen to a lot of podcasts but it is fun to do once you get over the technical difficulties. For those who don’t know me or Mike, we’re doing this over Skype with Mike in Canada at 3pm and me in the UK at 9pm – sounds like we’re in the same room though doesn’t it?!
