NPR has an interesting blog entry on “What ‘Mastered For iTunes’ Really Means”. I hadn’t spotted this since I’ve been a life long Apple avoider. It’s not that I think Apple has bad products, it’s just they always, always look for a way to lock users into their systems. I’ve felt for a long time that the music industry would eventually find a way to strike back at MP3. In this case it makes perfect sense. Pay particular attenion to the last two paragraphs.
Right now this is a place holder for a future project. I’m done committing all my personal data, pictures, anecdotes and history to facebook, and over the years since I started posting regularly on the “web” back in 1996, while still at IBM, I’ve worked hard to keep my persona’s separate. This project is will be my effort to “take back the web“.
I’ll get to it, when I get to it. In the interim if you are looking for something, you’ll likely find it here.
++ Check the date out on this entry! It was originally posted from the original smart phone to my livejournal account on that date. I’m considering importing my whole livejournal account here… Thoughts? It was mostly travelling and triathlon posts. ++
So, still in setup mode and exploring how livejournal works. This entry came live from my Palm Tungsten W.
Later, I edited this entry and added a link to the tri club I’m currently the chairman of, Tri-Force
