The Power of Blogs

Someone on Slashdot pointed to this article on "Power Laws, Weblogs, and Inequality" by Clay Shirky. Very interesting stuff, and another indication (as if one were needed) of how blogs and similar interactive technologies are coming of age. I'm listing it here for further reference.

New and upcoming

Ooh, some very interesting new releases listed in the latest Cuneiform/Wayside announcement. Michael Giles's long-lost Progress is finally available, and there'll be a DVD from Van der Graaf Generator ! Also Robert Wyatt's Solar Flares Burn for You, a new band with Frédéric L'Épée, Happy the Man's new The Muse Awakens and a new CD from Djam Karet.

Sony: Case of Right vs Left Hand

Another pointer on Slashdot, to a Wired article about the problems for large entertainment corporations as they support the RIAA's war on online music exchange systems (filesharing and Webcasting in particular).

Issues for the Internet Society

Found a pointer on Slashdot to a set of Economist articles on 'Issues for the Internet Society'. Looks interesting, and I'm bookmarking it for further reading.

Could also make for useful research material,

PFM Live

I'm hearing lots of good things about the new P.F.M. Live in Japan 2-CD set.
