Dan Bull’s Stop the Digital Economy Bill – Message to Mandelson.

This tune and commentary is by Dan Bull who became popular recently when he penned a note to Lily Allen, opposing graduated-response.

Here is a brilliant article by Cory Doctorow at the Guardian,  which highlights the fact that Lord Mandelsons Digital Economy Bill (which is a contradiction in itself) is not only a little misguided but it could have a dramatic impact on the economy.

There is an official “don’t disconnect us petition” which is being promoted by Stephen Fry so if you want to see this ridiculous bill stopped sign up now.

We will have to wait and see what happens over the next few months lets hope that this latest form of Government control is put where it belongs in the recycle bin!

What is a Browser? Views That Are Both – Interesting & Disturbing!

Just caught the the above video and thought that it is very interesting but also quite alarming as this selection of people don’t realise how this new form of media is delivered, something I think the newspaper and old media barons would be very happy with!

Hopefully this is something that will be addressed with the continued growth of online availability both at home with broadband and the mobile adaptation!

Take the Stairs Instead of the Escalator with the Piano Staircase..

I think the above viral piece is excellent and there a few more to be found over at the fun theory – (aka Volkswagen) –

It seems to make a very good point that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better.
