"The Electronic Frontier Foundation has been around for 20 years now, and alongside all the heroic legal work they do, their site is a great clearinghouse for information about digital rights."


"My pal philosopher and all around head, Tim Morton’s blog concerning “object oriented ontology” and “ecology without nature” – both interesting to think about in terms of music, which is definitely an object that withdraws before you can grab hold of it."


"I’m part of a sound studies group at Cornell this year, which includes Jennifer Stoever-Ackerman, who edits this great group blog. Note this post about the economics of music making today."
