I remember our Mayor presided over the opening of a 25 year old time capsule put there by the local schools. Inside was a lazer disc. When he asked to view the contents of it, nobody could find a device to play it. Vint is right. And its not just a DRM thing, its a lack of standards thing too.

In my experience (as a dev team lead and interviewer) foreign workers are generally more educated, more productive and more willing to got the extra mile than the local self-entitled bunch.
Now because of your whiny "teamstering" here on Slashdot, the visa numbers wil probably go down, hurting US business.

Some people think that because its on the web then it ahs no real world effects. Unfortunatly a lot of privacy types here are quietly rooting for these silk road guys, the guys who deal to anyone, kids included. They don't care who buys their stuff. But if a dealer was standing outside a school dealing to the students they would go crazy and call the cops, and rightly so.
