A previous post now is redundant.
A video of The Daily Show has been deleted from the YouTube site.
The post remains unadulterated to be historically correct.
I’m assuming this ties into the moves afoot by BT to go completely IP on the telecom infrastructure.

Not only does it have snippets of some of my posts (with links thankfully!) but it also has in the footer:
“‘A Business Model for the Digital Age – Part V Blog Digest’ is proudly powered by WordPress”
Now whilst I’m aware that imitaion is the sincerest form of flattery – this is stretching the limits somewhat!
Love the concept. Like the intent. Hate the hypocrisy.
BTW – I wanted to embed from the Dove site but they didn’t have the option there so I just went with the link from there and the embedded video from YouTube.
“Most Profound Man in Iraq – an unidentified farmer in a fairly remote area who, after being asked by Reconnaissance Marines (searching for Syrians) if he had seen any foreign fighters in the area replied “Yes, you.””
“Best Piece of U.S. Gear – new, bullet-proof flak jackets. O.K., they weigh 40 lbs and aren’t exactly comfortable in 120 degree heat, but they’ve saved countless lives out here.
Best Piece of Bad Guy Gear – Armor Piercing ammunition that goes right through the new flak jackets and the Marines inside them.”
Now, that is black humour!
It sounds a fascinating read and is definitely going on my “to-read” list.
There is supposed to be a longer version of this interview available on the website – but I can’t find it! I assume it will appear here in “The Extended Interview” section at some point.
He has a bit about it in his blog. He lists the 7 points from the article:
1. Obscurity is a far greater threat to authors and creative artists than piracy.
2. Piracy is progressive taxation.
3. Customers want to do the right thing, if they can.
4. Shoplifting is a bigger threat than piracy.
5. File sharing networks don’t threaten book, music, or film publishing. They threaten existing publishers.
6. “Free” is eventually replaced by a higher-quality paid service.
7. “There’s more than one way to do it.”
Well worth a read.
