John Dvorak on DRM

Head Cranky Geek John Dvorak writes an interesting article: Screw the Digital-Rights Bugaboo

Can’t we find alternative ways to be entertained? Do you really need to listen to music all day long? Try classical music. You’ll find genuine and sincere musicians who are not there to crank out pop junk. Move to indie bands if you need a dose of rock. Stop going to the movies and go see some plays—even a high-school play. These kids need your money more than anyone in Hollywood. Do you really need to watch a movie? Find an art theater and watch something thoughtful, if you must.

Happy Birthday to….
