Content Isn't King – Connections Are

from the connect-here dept

We’ve said this over and over again every time we read that mobile content needs digital rights management to succeed. That’s confused thinking from folks stuck in a broadcast model of content, not realizing that the whole value of the internet and wireless is the fact that people can connect with each other. Thus, it’s good to see that others are making the same argument, pointing out that it’s the ability to connect with others that makes this medium valuable. The big content companies still insist it’s the content and come up with ways to protect it, while the rest of us go on connecting.
