This was posted on digg today and I thought was pretty cool. Knowing most of the guys and gals that come to this site (or used to anyways :( I think everyone just stopped lol. Granted we did become very inactive - sorry about that) I figured you'd find it interesting.



P.S. For once LDS was noted as "Latter Day Saints" instead of "Mormons" - that caught my eye right away lol.

Piracy... just when you think you know everything you realize you really dont!

Portfolio.com posted an amazing article called "The Pirates Can't Be Stopped." The article begins with a talk about a hacker who was able to break into MediaDefender - a company that protects a lot of the entertainment companies against piracy. The hacker was able to get his hands on the email system of the company as well and throughout the article there are snippets of letters sent between the co-founder and his employees. It then goes on talking about the guys behind Pirate Bay (the famous torrent site) and more.

It's really interesting to see some of the letters sent in response to things that happen on the internet. In addition the article discusses the effects of piracy on the media and brings back the same question: is piracy hurting the industry as bad as they really say, or is it, in fact, helping it instead?

Anyways I thought it was a really interesting read and wanted to share it with you guys. Denis you definitely need to check it out when you got some time:
