Son of Napster Tweet
Bob Cringely is my favourite columnist on the net. This week he's come up with a brilliant idea: Snapster. Bob believes he can bring about inevitable changes in the recording industry, and possibly make one of you lucky readers rich. The reason Bos says he's writing this column is two-fold. To start with, simply because he would like people to consider lateral solutions to problems: pushing the concept of problem solving in a new way.
The second reason: he doesn't like the current situation in the recording industry where power is concentrated in the hands of executives who are doing all they can to stop the rotation of the Earth.
