Links for 7.26.09: Piracy! Charley Harper! Pushbutton! Writing through!
by Josh Kimball
*Business: The New York Times looks at how streaming music is changing the pay / piracy equation. Can Spotify and Pandora cause people to steal less?
*Video: Watch the Tron Legacy trailer. The bicycles remind me of the Apple IIe game Viper. I think.
*Craft: Handpainted Charley Harper needlepoint patterns. One of them costs $350 bucks. I don’t have $350 to spend on needlepoint. FYI.
*Local: You can watch this video of former Minneapolites The Hold Steady performing “Sequestered in Memphis.” Sequestered. Funny word. Also: glittery.
*More video: Wired editor Chris Anderson talks more about “Free” on Charlie Rose. I don’t know how you can call yourself a writer or editor and embrace the idea of “writing through“. Write it or don’t write it. But don’t write through it. [psfk]
