CONTROLLARE I PC
C’e’ un bell’intervento sul blog di Doc Searls sulla faccenda Palladium e controllo dei contenuti online. Ecco una frase che mi e’ molto piaciuta (e che mi ha molto preoccupato):
More delicately put, they want to move the PC into the consumer electronics cartel they know so well. They want to succeed where dot-coms failed, at the biggest fantasy of the era: TV with a buy button. Stereos too. Also MP3 players. All of it.
They want Intel to be Sony. They want HP to be Panasonic. They want IBM to be Hitachi. They want to outlaw the white box PC business, unless those PCs include government-mandated DRM. And they want to proscecute any and all who circumvent that system.
