It’s an outdated business model. Pirates stole a Netflix show and the majordomos shrugged and said all episodes were available online, no biggie. And it wasn’t. You don’t fight pirates. You fight their business model! Which is why you never hear about P2P in the age of streaming. Scour the internet for files that take […]

CREDIBILITY Say what you mean and do not lie. Stand for something. Be trustworthy. It is the antidote to the duplicity pervading our society. Have only one face, not two.
