[rumori] napster

I was wondering just how many people on this list use napster? Not
that I want the whole list being clogged up with people saying "I
do!" (it's bad enough getting 8 identical mailouts from ME yesterday
if you were extra special).

Was curious about where everyone is going to go once people start
having to pay in June to download? It seems highly unlikely that
anyone is going to be sharing anything interesting from that point
onward, but well, we've all got the bug now, haven't we? I don't
know the way stuff like audiognome works - does it rely on something
like napster (a midway server hosting text files)? There seems to be
a strong community on napster with some strong views on freedom of
file sharing and it really worries me that this may fragment. I
don't want to have to end up sifting thru tons of shared porn files
on gnutella either. Any thoughts on what may happen, is this
community going to fragment or will napster 2 come along? Is it
already here?

Sorry if this is a boring thing to talk about but I've become almost
reliant on napster to make music now, ha ha...
