The first problem with the current model is that it only works through artificial scarcity. You buy a copy of a game for $60, not because each digital copy is worth $60, but because that’s the price that the publisher can charge and expect to return a decent profit in the face of production costs and loss (through piracy, physical theft, sales and giveaways). This artificial scarcity is what makes piracy so attractive to some people. If you know that the system is broken and you know that the system is gamed to expect a level of piracy, being a pirate is just being part of a business ecosystem. DRM, price increases and crippled user experiences are driving piracy which, in turn, is driving up prices even more and driving development away from computers and onto consoles where control over the system is easier and piracy is tougher (depending on the console, of course).
So, we have to lose the per-user pricing and instead turn to a per-project price model.View More Defeating Piracy by making it irrelevant
I don’t remember the next twenty minutes or so very well. I think that I actually scratched lines in the drywall with a clawed right hand while forcing my left hand, which was wrapped around all of the wires coming out of the back of the machine, into obeying the tiny little voice of reason ineffectually screaming ‘STOP’ from a dusty, forgotten corner of my brain. Uncharacteristically, I was able to stop myself from ripping anything apart, putting holes in any walls, screaming, kicking or otherwise venting my anger in my normal and truly horrible way which, to anyone who grew up with me, it a pretty big step in my budding maturity. To paraphrase Swingers, it looks like our baby’s all grown up.View More My Technology Nightmare
