“I love The Economist. It’s like a really rational guy on crack.” They finally read The Pirate’s Dilemma (think of pirates as researching new markets much faster than companies have time to) and have a piece on how maybe the toddler-with-guns ownership ethics of the recording industry might not be the most financially productive way to go. The reader comments are suitably sceptical on the article’s unexamined assumptions.
(So, did any reader of cassette-using age not have a pile of tapes from back when they didn’t have money for records? Anyone saying “me!”, I don’t believe you.)
