    The one thing I don't get about that article is how they can derive a future data forecast. I'd really like to see their methodology. I think that including something like that in the article seriously weakens their case - the facts are damning enough, no reason to make things up.

    Never underestimate the amount of contempt a failed musician has for those of us who are still trying.
    If the party's good enough, you can actually suck to a remarkable degree.
