    Excellent, $10 and Jokes on my phone

    Didn't know about this guy - he is funny and I bought both of his audio files as I drive a lot or go on planes and travel. Video is nice however most comedy works in audio only mode.

    Since it is open and DRM free I could have jumped on usenet and got it for free (surely??), the reason I didn't? his site is awesome!! you can listen to a preview to see if it is funny then you can download it and have it on your pc quicker than searching usenet.

    Plus he has interesting content regarding the process of putting this content up and seeing what happened, so I have something to do while I wait for the download to complete.

    Seriously content creators need to get a clue and have this extra access to their wares, people with cash will part with it...

    The Drones need to Communicate with a Land Based Network (as Nicholas Orr)

    which is identifiable via a traceroute...

    So actually planes are not required.

    This is why the whole refurbished oil rig will not work either because all the that local government on land has to do is go up to that building and unplug the power. No Power, No Network, No INTERNETz!

    Really the plan needs to be build a global network that is too big to shut down as shutting it down will mean turning off the internet for multiple millions of subscribers and that is a pretty tall order for any government to consider to stamp out 20% of illegal traffic (yes I made that number up).

    As always it comes back to the IP holders of video need to pull their finger out and setup a simple site that accepts payments for any video available and collect money. Then they need to be the one's releasing the content to usenet/bittorrent/ftp/http servers/trackers/whatever as well as their iTunes/Amazon/etc stores with links back to the site that collects money.

    Wish they'd employ me and pay me multi millions of dollars (once setup I could then go join the Gates Foundation and do something useful with the money) to set this up, instead of pursuing their current model of sue and fail.
