While sitting here (ideally to work on making a kick-ass phylogenetic tree for a meeting with the Bosserino tomorrow morning) eating some Smartfood popcorn (the best freakin' popcorn ever - oddly enough, I have this memory of going to the waterways in downtown Las Colinas for some carnival and getting free bags of the stuff... this was probably when I was in elementary or middle school) I happened upon an ArsTechnica article
about the ominous July 15th date for the royalty hike that's supposed to be introduced, and kill, Internet streaming music. (For some backstory, check out this Wiki entry
on the proposed changes.
I was pleasantly surprised that the bill to overturn this royalty hike - which is unreasonable, and should
be overturned - was introduced by one of my favorite politicians, Sen. Brownback
(of pro-life fame/infamy).
I like that dude.
So, good job, Mr. Brownback.
