                @dalton only true for old middlemen (aka inefficient centralized institutions). A tweet can be retweeted hundred of times before reaching me, that’s 100 middlemen.

                  @dalton @stevestreza @jason you forget to mention that journalism has always been about aggregation/curation and that the real original source of information (the witness, the expert, …) is only seeking distribution (with attribution and link back).

                    The reasoning behind disabling certain features vs killing the app for pirates is to prevent features that cost $ from being used. If I totally kill the app someone will patch the app, if I disable some features they won’t.

                        @timhaines I remember when you could make a second whole and double density and storage to make SimCity v1 fit. Also remember days when you had to switch 10 disks to install a program. Oh happy days :)
