Doc Searls has been pointing to lots of articles about the insane Net radio fees, but this is the first article I've seen in the mainstream media that presents a balanced view. Most of them were incredibly one-sided, as was the treatment on NPR's Weekend Edition I heard of KPIG shutting down their streams. Everything was of the form “hey, we can't afford this”, and the RIAA saying “well, that's your problem, you're stealing music”, rather than discussing the completely bizarre manner in which the fees were “negotiated” in the first place.

I did some hacking on the Subversion code today and was very impressed: it's well-written and -commented, and the folks on #svn continue to be amazingly patient and understanding with my issues. Subversion 1.0 will kick ass.
