Vielleicht sind sie aber auch nur beleidigt, weil meinungsbasierte Argumente nicht tragbar sind?
Streame ich Musik, fühlt sich das für mich an, als hätte ich keinen eigenen Kleiderschrank.
Oh. My. God. I have had NoScript enabled which pretty much claims to do the same thing, but it still seems to slow the browser down considerably. Not to mention the constantly nagging dialog boxes.
And I suspect that there is _a lot_ of room for speed improvement with clever coding. Come on coders!! Do it! Save those CPU cycles!
Tech industry types think they’re the best thing ever to happen to music and the arts. Don’t believe them
I just looked at the (German) Wikipedia page of Twitter and found this table there. It’s pretty self-explanatory, so I don’t think the German matters.
What I find interesting is, that 7 (!) out of the top 10 accounts with the most followers are from musicians. And the tech world keeps telling musicians that their work is a commodity and treats it as basically worthless. Better yet: they™ run a huge campaign to effectively undermine every effort to create a level playing field in the digital world.
But thinking a little longer about this I can sort of understand: it must be a terrible feeling that there are people out there who manage to deeply touch and affect people with a simple song.

Notice the sharp dropoff in messages from 2013 to 2014:
The reason why there are messages at all is that I still have a couple of alerts that get delivered to that address.
And contrary to many technophiles I’m still alive, I can still communicate with everybody, I get everything done in other words: we don’t necessarily need Google for everything.
Although I wish that the problem of search would be solved far better than it is now. Even though Google is doing a great job, it could be much better:
downrank obvious content farms
remove illegal content from the results
remove scammy websites from the ad-network
I know it’s not easy, but when has Google every shied away from a hard challenge? You can do it, can’t you?
The article linked below is extremely sad. I know this for a fact since I`m working in the industry that`s most affected by this sort of behavior.
And what`s particularly sad is that people all over the world who proclaim to be music lovers ignore and outright laugh at the challenges and exploitation that culture creators face.
Please read this article:
Google and Facebook are increasingly resembling “suprastates” to whom national – and perhaps international – law doesn’t apply. But if you think that replacing laws with a free-for-all leads to anything other than the strong crushing the weak, then I have a bridge to sell you.
To all the dear people who think copyright “monopoly” is the opposite of sliced bread, read this.
You too, tech journalists and populous of the copyleft echo chamber.
Rivalry doesn’t just cut your profits, it makes companies focus on defeating their competitors instead of differentiating their own brand. In an interview with The Guardian, Thiel said that great businesses caught up in disrupting other businesses is like a successful career focused on disrupting someone else’s career instead of doing something valuable on your own. “So why do people believe that competition is healthy?” he asks.
