Here’s an interesting article on Salon by John Snyder, president of
Artist House Records, a board member of the National Association of
Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), and a 32-time Grammy nominee (bio
cut and pasted off of Salon). He argues that file
sharing does not hurt record companies
and points out the odd
disconnect that they will pay millions to get songs heard on the radio
and spend millions to fight the equivalent via P2P trading.

I stand by my belief that West Wing has jumped the
shark and I think its fall is accelerating. The formula is wearing
thin, the writing is wearing thin and I hate both the Will Bailey
character and the way they write his dialogue. The whole “The staff
doesn’t like me” stuff is neither funny nor interesting. The only
thing I get out of it nowadays is that I get to see John Spencer
onscreen for a few minutes a week. He’s one of my favorite actors.

A little experimentation with the keyboard and my verdict so far is
“That was worth $30.” It’s not a fullsize keyboard and it doesn’t have
all the keys. The worst aspect is that some punctuation is in new and
different places which will be hard to get used to, like the question
mark on the “G”. The wireless link program allows you to rotate the
screen, which is good since the IR port on my Prism is on the left
side. I need to play with it more, but so far so good.
