A selection of mails I've sent. Some funny, some thought provoking.
Now, I should note that it doesn't mean that terrorism comes from one or the other, because terrorism seems to be related less to poverty than to a sense of diminished expectations. It tends to be people who know there's a better life, know they could get a better life because they have the skills and drive, but are prevented from having that better life. Terrorists tend to be middle-class, fairly educated, fairly smart people. Just because people are poor doesn't mean that they'll become terrorists.
As India and China become such big players in the global economy, the old charge that globalization equals Americanization is disappearing. In ten years people are going to see an economy that is as dominated by China, India and Brazil as it is by the EU or US. There are a variety of different rule sets competing here, and the globalization we have today will not be what we have in a decade. But the conflict isn't fought by massed armies on the battlefield, it's fought in huge bureaucratic conferences like the World Trade Organization. That's a positive process.
A Lufthansa 747-400 and a United 757-200 are on simultaneous landing approaches on the parallel runways 28L and 28R at San Francisco airport.. The distance between the runways is is 225 meters.
Due to the Jumbo being 3 times larger than the 757 and being behind it gives us this fantastic optical illusion of seeming to fly too near together.
- Thieves steal music that is provided in the mainstream and never intend to help the artists out. On the other hand pirates obtain a wide variety of music that is not always provided in ways that are easy to get to
- Another radical difference between thieves and pirates is how they get their music. Thieves walk into record stores and take physical copies off the shelves. When a thief takes it from the shelf they are taking something that cost money to produce and stripping the store of its ability to sell it for a profit. Pirates don't take advantage of the already established distribution system. Instead pirates have their own.
- If the (music industry) took advantage of the benefits of piracy instead of wasting thousands on frivolous lawsuits they could see themselves launched into a new era of prosperity
