Rage Against the Machine and the Machine Bites Back

Interesting discussion in this episode of The Overflow podcast from Stack Overflow. They discuss Napster (remember Napster?!) and how the artists rioted against peer-to-peer sharing (which I get) only to have one or two giant corporations come in (iTunes store and Spotify) and gobble up the industry, monopolizing profits and crushing small artists far worse than Napster ever did.

Something to reflect on in our current climate of “burn it to the ground”.
