- An old and a new article about why Digital Rights Management (a.k.a. Digital Restrictions Management, or DRM) is a big mistake. Plus a bonus followup.
- Dave Winer thinks that "...if you swapped the people on stage with an equal number chosen at random from the audience, the new panelists would effectively be smarter, because they didn't have the time to get nervous..."
- Kirsten Bole on how old ways of musicians making money relate to how musicians could make money again.
- It seems there are too many web content management systems out there (via Matt).
- Video comparing the new Nintendo DS Lite to the old "non-Lite" model I have. The new one looks like a micro-iBook.
- Apparently the Firefox browser brought in $72 million USD last year. Good for them.
- Despite its flaws, Roland says that the web development language PHP has the applications, which is why it's eating Java's lunch in the public development arena—something Tim Bray was wondering about.
- Also from Roland: how to record Skype calls on Mac OS X. (I linked to Doug Kaye's suggestions earlier.)
- Sweetwater Music's excellent anatomy of an electric guitar.
- Steven Frank's secret Spamusement cartoons are hilariously weird. My favourite is Orphan Annie.
- You can run Apple's Front Row on Macs it isn't designed for. No remote control, though.
