I've added a new link to "Other Journeys": AngieMcKaig.com. The subtitle of this one is "Technofodder for the Masses", which is an accurate label: she provides a lot of news items on all things tech. (Plus, she apparently is from Toronto, which is one of my favorite places on the planet -- next to Buffalo, of course.)
Also via her site, this fascinating article on the recording industry and its increasingly maddening attempts to maintain its relevance and dominance over artists. I don't entirely agree with the article, but it's the best making-of-the-case for free downloads I've ever read, plus a convincing argument that the industry is more interested in its own well-being than pretty much any concern for the artists.
