Let the Music Play" Campaign

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has launched a "Let the Music Play" campaign to fight back the recording industry on criminalizing music sharing over the Internet. Their assessment of the impact of peer-to-peer technology on the recording industry is very perceptive.

"The problem is that there is no adequate system in place that allows music lovers access to their favorite music while compensating artists and copyright holders."

Instead of suing users, perhaps their should learn a few lessons from Apple's iTunes music store and update their business plan.

Herald to the EFF to stand-up for consumers' right! Support by becoming a member.

The 7th Webby Awards

The 7th Webby Awards was presented on June 5th. It has wound down dramatically to become an online only event. The Webby web site itself is rather hard to navigate. It takes me a while to find the winners' 5 words acceptance speeches. Don't miss out Howard Rheingold's animated keynote speech. Now that the venture capitalists have receded from the Internet gold rush, individual innovation and creativity are once again making the web exciting.

Some of my favorites are still winners from previous years. It shows that web as a medium can be fun and artistic.
