As my .sig used to say: "Smash global capitalism, spend less money."

I like that ... As a buddhist, one of the principles I try to live by is to
... want or desire less stuff/things.

I'm very careful about what I desire/want.

mediatrips.com


maybe i belong to the wrong online community but i keep thinking that media=
.artists would want to use the media "events" of our culture to critique th=
e culture that created them. maybe i'm wrong.

www.mediatrips.com is an ongoing project and my goal is ... "to encourage m=
edia companies and content owners to offer alternative licenses to consumer=
s."

FOR EXAMPLE ...
The Non-Commercial Distribution License ("NCDL")
The NCDL is an "alternative" license. It is a premium license for consumers=
that want to use the content they buy in new and creative ways. It gives m=
ore rights to the consumer. Content purchased with the NCDL is delivered in=
a non-encrypted format. The license grants the user the right to twist and=
manipulate the content any way they want. More imporantly, the license gra=
nts the consumer the right to distribute/display the new "Collective" or "D=
erivative" work.

Whether you agree or disagree ... i always welcome a sincere critique of my=
ideas

best
