Review: Free: The Future of a Radical Price by Chris Anderson (The Observer)
Free stuff is spreading because of one fundamental difference between the bricks-and-mortar world (which Anderson calls the world of atoms) and the digital world (which Anderson calls the world of bits). In the world of atoms, each item is expensive to produce and distribute; in the world of bits, it costs close to nothing. This has all sorts of consequences. Pricing models become infinitely variable. Copying costs almost nothing, so piracy mushrooms. People can create stories, songs and movies and distribute them to other people, gratis.


Priced to Sell: Malcolm Gladwell reviews Free by Chris Anderson (The New Yorker)
"Free is just another price, and prices are set by individual actors, in accordance with the aggregated particulars of marketplace power. 'Information wants to be free,' Anderson tells us, 'in the same way that life wants to spread and water wants to run downhill.' But information cant actually want anything, can it?"

Beyoncé - Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)   06.10.09

Although it took some time for me to warm up to Beyonce, I soon became enthralled by her classic beauty, sleek moves, and buttery vocals. Once I pushed past the shame of selling out to contemporary mainstream pop/r&b and shed my hipster-wannabe status, I mustered up the courage to share my love for the former Destiny's Child front-woman with my staff-mates. Soon "Single Ladies" became an anthem of sorts in the office. Plus, we're both Virgos. I am always drawn to other Virgos.
