David Pogue, the authoritative technology blogger of the NY Times, actually believes there is a purpose to copyright. Increasingly he fears the kids don’t, and it worries him.
Interesting thing about kids, though. They grow and change. Back in the 1960s Quebec separatists said “All the kids in Quebec believe in independence, so our majority is inevitable.” Well, lots of the kids in Quebec still do, but for forty years kids have becoming adults, and the majority never quite emerged.
Nice little story Pogue tells though.
