A Culture of First Drafts

Nope, this is not a posting about blogging. This is a posting about IPR and DRM.

At lunch today a friend was related stories about various really horrible 50s science fiction he had read as a child. In one of these stories the high IQ crowd buds off from the rest of the population and then convinces them all to board a ship for Venus. This plot device, of course, reappears in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Which illustrates that strong digital rights management is really a plan to assure we live in a culture of first drafts.
