so what’s the future of file-sharing from your point of view? does it have one?
“there will always be file-sharing. the thing is that megaupload was shut down because they were serving lady gaga and microsoft products, not john cage. the avant-garde is always safe because it files way beneath the radar. it’s funny because ubuweb is available in china, although it contains loads of sexual, violent and politically subversive work. but if the authorities come to the front page of ubu, they see a lot of red and black text with names they’ve never heard of and an image of an old man, samuel beckett. they must think it’s a site for pensioners.”
