From the Twitter files;
Some thoughts, ideas & comments that caught my attention this week:
Canadians are being set up by music/movie lobby groups & our politicians in a rather cozy relationship it seems … Is there a connection between crappy broadband and minimal use of open source in Canada? via Michael Geist
via @skap5 Powerful reminder of the shift from an industrial era. GM employed 395,000 building cars in the 1970′s. After latest closings it’s 40,000. GM’s US market share declined from 45 to 19% from 1980 to today. Meanwhile via @techberry The only way to save GM is to kill GM – we must convert auto factories to mass transit: Michael Moore.
