Non che abbia avuto troppo tempo in questi giorni e confesso che il post di Paolo mi era sfuggito. Ma tutti noi che da tempo cerchiamo di farci una idea su come sara’ la distribuzione dei contenuti in rete nei prossimi anni forse faremmo bene a leggere, stampare e conservare questo post di David Weinberger.
I’m a capitalist of sorts and a writer of sorts, so I am sympathetic to the idea that creators should be paid for their work. But, I’m also a citizen and a member of cultural communities. So, for one moment, I’d like you to perform an exercise in selective attention. Forget every other consideration â€” even though they’re fair and important considerations â€” and see if you can acknowledge that a world in which everyone has free access to every work of creativity in the world is a better world. Imagine your children could listen to any song ever created anywhere. What a blessing that would be!
