Slowly, bit by bit, the world of knowledge, of information, is changing. Sites like Wikipedia have been working on this for a very long time already. It's a community effort, and though not all information is guaranteed to be 100% accurate, the community validation effort does ensure that most information is more or less correct.

I really had it with the music industry. Think again. It's been quite a bit of fun. I mentioned my "problem" to people I know, I posted it in quite a few places, and got many responses. P2Pnet even wrote about it in a newsitem.

This world is becoming too weird. For years I've been managing Electronic Music World, a free online music magazine promoting both indie and commercial electronic music. Publishing news, reviews and the occasional article. The commercial part seems to be a problem.

I have always been a big Google fanboy. And as far as I've always known, Google had a simple policy: Do No Harm. However, it seems that they now are intending to actually Do Some Harm.

It actually seems to work. A few months ago, I signed up for Text Link Ads, an advertising program for websites that sells simple text links for your website. The only thing you need to do is place a small piece of code on your site. And so I did for Electronic Music World.

In the past week already, the media have been paying a lot of attention to what happened 5 years ago this year on the 11th of september. The attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, the attack on the Pentagon, and the airplane that went down, supposedly on it's way to the White House.
Here is my tip on how to remember 9/11 without following the official story, two DVD's about what happened, each giving a completely different view.

What was supposed to be a documentary about the NY fire department turned into a documentary on what happened on that faithful September day. A split view, one from outside the WTC, the other from within. Shocking and real.

Less documentary, more conspiracy theory. And even though I think some "facts" might be farfetched, I have the feeling that this movie contains more of the truth than the official statement by the US government and whatever was said in the media. A scary thought, I know, but I really feel this way. Don't take it 100% serious, but at least 90%.
