DRM is preventing the development of new browsers

Samuel Maddock posted a disturbing article explaining how DRM is preventing the development of new browsers.
Since the introduction of EME to web standards, the ability for new browsers to compete has become restricted by gatekeepers, which goes against the promises of the platform.

Silenced Drums

Legendary drummer Neil Peart from Rush just passed away.  Back in high school Rush was one of my favorite bands and I still love their music. Neil was responsible for the incredible drumming and beautiful lyrics of all of their songs. He also wrote several books and was incredibly generous in teaching and promoting the art of drumming. His passing marks a real loss in the music world. Goodbye Neil and thanks for all the wonderful music.

First post of the new year

My first post of 2020 is a test (of course). My blog was crashing earlier when I tried to post with a picture - it seems to be working now.

Disney's Star Wars trilogy is a mess

BABY YODA!!!I'm amazed how much BETTER The Mandalorian was than the terrible "Disney trilogy". They should put Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni in charge of future Lucasfilm efforts (assuming there even are any after the last three dumpster fires). It's hard to believe that Disney spent billions to acquire Star Wars without a plan for Episodes 7-9.

Kathleen Kennedy should be ashamed of herself for betraying George Lucas' trust. (click for video)

2019 Ended on a down note...

2020 will be GREAT...I won't accept any other options.

This is a terrible idea. Who regulates the regulators?

Words that make me smile

The are certain words that always bring a smile to my face. I was chatting with my brilliant friend Ken and he casually used the word feckless. Feckless is one of several words that always makes me smile. Why? I guess it's because feckless is one of those words that sounds like what it is describing. As much as I love these types of words, there are popular colloquialisms such as "irregardless" that provoke disappointment when someone uses them.
Don't be feckless in your use of the language.

Observation: autocorrect seems to autocorrect every term except "autocorrect".

Bad Strategy

The strategy here seems to be if you can't beat them, divide them. https://www.forbes.com/sites/sergeiklebnikov/2019/12/05/elizabeth-warren-reportedly-drafting-bill-to-ban-mega-mergers
