“The internet did not replace television, which did not replace cinema, which did not replace books. E-books aren’t going to replace books either. E-books are books, merely with a different form.”—A List Apart: Articles: Web Standards for E-books
“I share the view that students who let social network style, like SMS (text) abbreviations, such as L8R, and emoticons (like smiley faces) slip into their more formal communications, run the risk of being viewed as poor communicators by very influential people, such as potential employers and graduate school review boards.”—Social Media Today | Students Failing English Due to Twitter, Facebook
A couple of years ago I bought the domain savepandora.co.uk in order to help the fight to keep Pandora radio playing in the UK. It didn’t help, and you can hear the best personalised radio in the US only.

"January 1st 2010 — and every January 1st – is public domain day, the day we celebrate the entry of copyrighted works into the public domain. In the United States no published work will pass into the public domain tomorrow — nor the next year, nor any year until 2019. (If you lived in Europe you might now be celebrating the release of the works of Freud or Yeats.) Thus, we have little to celebrate, and many costs to mourn. Its sad to look at the works that could be entering the public domain today.”
