The Age of Music Piracy Is Officially Over

I totally agree with this Wired article. All of the valid arguments by music pirates have been satisfied by the music industry.  There’s no excuse anymore. If you insist on pirating music, it’s because you want to take things you didn’t pay for, commonly called stealing.

Twitter and Advertising

Two great points in Dave Winer’s post: Twitter is not a public utility, even if it’s been acting like one; and spend less money on advertising and more money on making your website easier to use.

Progress in Real Time Content Distribution

Dave Winer is doing some interesting work towards a new real-time content protocol he’s calling FeedHose. It’s like a feed aggregator combined with a subscription hub. It’s similar to the PubSubHubBub/rssCloud to XMPP bridge I made last year, but better. He’s pretty good at forming communities around his protocols, so hopefully this will gain some traction. We need some progress in open, real-time content distribution.
