Хубава статия (анализ), която прочетох преди няколко минути:
(Може би си спомняте, че преди няколко дни избухна скандал, когато Amazon тихо и “незабележимо” изтриха хиляди копия на “1984” и “Фермата” на Джодж Оруел от техните електронни книги.)
The Orwell incident was too rich with irony to escape criticism, however. Amazon was forced to promise that it will no longer delete its customers’ books.
Don’t put too much stock in that promise. The worst thing about this story isn’t Amazon’s conduct; it’s the company’s technical capabilities. Now we know that Amazon can delete anything it wants from your electronic reader. That’s an awesome power, and Amazon’s justification in this instance is beside the point.
As our media libraries get converted to 1’s and 0’s, we are at risk of losing what we take for granted today: full ownership of our book and music and movie collections.
“1984” или “451 по Фаренхайт” може би ше бъдат възможни един ден…
