Geek, reasserting

Posted on Tue 26 April 2005 in general

Today's Penny Arcade pretty much nails a lot of the feelings I have about MMORPG's. I think it is worth reading Tyco's commentary as well.

While we are on the subject of monetising online services it was refreshing to see this article on the BBC talking people realising the limitations DRM places on them as the legal download market expand. I did see mention of Bleep which offers DRM free music in mp3 format. The format choice is only a minor hurdle and its nice to know they are looking at Ogg and FLAC as potential formats. I'm going to have a play with the service and see if its Firefox friendly and of course if they have any decent music :-)
