The day the music died 

Permanent location of 'The day the music died'

Wonderful piece by Mark Pilgrim on the danger of letting someone else control your music through encryption. As he so nicely puts it:

[T]he left hand knows exactly what the right hand is doing: they’re both giving you the finger.

And yes, this does include iTunes. Plus or not, they still con you, although they are admittedly a bit more fair in their approach.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
