DRM won't ever work

"A [VHS] video would play once, and when finished, the film would lock into place. If a renter of the video wanted to play the video again, he or she would have to return the video to the video store and have the tape unlocked. In this way, the owner of the film could assure that it was being compensated for every use of the
copyrighted material."

[From: The Future of Ideas by Lawrence Lessig.

The torment

2007-09-16 07:29:20

I had almost forgotten how bad school and high school were. How awfully painful. Here's a fresh reminder on why you should never take your children to school or high school. There are better ways to educate a child; actually, schools and high schools currently do all they can to prevent a child from acquiring any cultural background or developing any skills at all.

Thanks for the reminder Scott.
