Kind of scattered today...

  • I love this news.  Sure, it's the “other guys,” but as a music lover I love to see a company find a way to take advantage of technology to distribute art, rather than running around trying to hang on to dated notions of intellectual property.  I don't support the illegal trade of copyright material, but I do think the solution is to find ways to work with technology not to stand in the way of the tsunami trying not to get wet.
  • We still have our soda.  But frankly I'm not that angry--I've worked in enough downright horrible environments to know that we are fortunate to work for a company that cares (granted, maybe less than before) about its employees.
  • I kind of resent the notion that I was recruited because they knew I would sign up to the Way.  I sort of hoped it was because I was a good engineer.  Although the article is mostly optimistic, and I guess this post is helping to introduce a dollop or two of reality...

Cheers!
