Universal Music Links To Unauthorized, Soundless Eminem YouTube Clip From Its Own Website

Universal Music Group has a long history of bringing lawsuits upon music and video sharing services (MySpace, Veoh and its investors, Grouper / Bolt.com, etc.), so it’s kind of surprising to see them link to a clip of one of their biggest artists, rapper and producer Eminem, which has not been authorized by its copyright holders (i.e. Universal Music themselves). Update: the news item has been updated as a result of this coverage. Good thing we have a screenshot. The link can be found on this January 7 news item on the UMG website about the ‘leaking’ of Eminem’s newest track, and leads to this YouTube clip posted by a regular YouTube user. In case you were wondering, Universal Music Group has an official channel on the video sharing site which does not feature a clip for this particular track yet. Ironically, there is a notice from YouTube below the video stating th... (more)

RE: What makes a data component good for standardizing?

Awesome message Bruce! Thank you. There is so much information packed into your short message. I'd like to focus today on one part. I'd like to verify that I have a correct understanding of the "unanticipated user." What is the "unanticipated user?" EXAMPLE Suppose you deploy a web service to provide currency exchange rates - a user sends two currencies (e.g., USD and CAN) and your web service responds with their exchange rates (1 USD = 1.23 CAN, 1 CAN = 0.90 USD). The "unanticipated user" means the users of your web service may be unknown to you. It does not mean that requests made by users are unknown or arbitrary. For example, your web service can't be expected to handle requests from a user wanting metric-to-English conversion rates. Rather, your service only handles requests for currency exchange rates, and the users issuing the requests may be unknown. "Design... (more)

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
