Content is Not King

For the current dominant content producers, the real threat from the Internet is probably less from piracy, and more from disintermediation. New producers can come in and, unburdened by the high overheads and obsolete habits of established players, can offer better deals to both the creative talent and the consumers.

hi yourself

That was the most enthusiastically sweet thing anyone's said to me lately. Remind me to give you a big fat sloppy kiss next time we run into each other :)

take care,

He's right, you know...

The links are so much more important than the bucket at the end -- because in the end the content itself is overwhelmed by the informational content of the path it took to get there -- the actual final location, the codec, the transmission, the dictionary, the media, the links you didn't follow that you thought you would, dead-ends and loop-backs, etc....

The text of God's Final Message to His Creation is absolutely worthless if no one knows where it is. And you better bet the first person to discover it will charge admission (and sell hotdogs and Coke®) to everyone else.
