Been gleaning the web and came across three interesting things today that I’d like to share here:
Jobs on DRM
The first one is a posting by Steve Jobs on the Apple website concerning DRM, in which he argues that DRM does not really serve any purpose cos only a small fraction (3%) of music being played on proprietary players like its own IPod is actually DRM-protected. In any case, all CDs sold by the majors are DRM-free. So, says Jobs, we could actually do without it.
The future of newspapers
The second is an interesting discussion about the future of newspapers on LinkedIn.
and the cherry on the ice cake:
The Machine is Us/ing Us
a nice video about web 2.0 by a Micheal Wesch, a professor in Anthropology.
