I still play my parents' vinyl collection sometimes. See the following
article which I have just found. I think it deserves a place among major
publications, but I doubt it'll ever happen because of conflicting
interests. Getting my views on Microsoft's involvement in politics and the
media is hard enough, unless I leave it in a personal blog. That's a
circular thing, surely. Everyone is afraid of retaliation, opposing views
(dividing or losing readership) and there's the issue of media ownership
(who pays the journalist his/her check).

Unwise Hollywood laws hurting U.S. industry
