is perhaps the internet's most infamous hack
, digi/net artist
. His work
stands for a growing culture
of artists who run wildly
through animated GIF landscapes populated
with corrupted data-compressed
bunny rabbits and tinny, MIDI renditions
of Savage Garden ballads. As the Lisson Gallery
, London, opens its archives to Arcangel's curatorial eye, could digi/net art
be set to infect
the real, fleshy world
, like a rampant Conficker Worm
? Has YouTube become
the truest reflection of our anthropological
selves? Are we destined to roam the int3erw£bs like the mythic beasts of yore
, hoping, in time
, that digi art can free us
from the confines of this fleshy void?

Apple iTunes 4.5
was released yesterday, bringing with it several nice new features, such as a live-updating "Party Shuffle" playlist — as well as not-so-nice features like attaching Music Store links to every artist and album in your library (I turned this off immediately). As for the iTunes Music Store
itself, Apple has integrated its QuickTime features of music videos and movie trailers (this is related to music how?), shopper-created "iMixes" and for this month, a new "Free Track of the Day," a questionable asset being that today's artist is Avril Lavigne
. ...Perhaps you'd rather have an album sung entirely with "meows"

to start offering unlimited downloads of their online music database. While it still only (leagally) allows users to burn 120 songs to disc, there are rumors of allowing permanent d/l of songs, too. Is this a sign of the music industry finally starting to do what they should have done from the start, which was embrace the medium and capitalize on its benefits rather than try to stifle it? Regardless of whether or not pressplay suceeds with this tactic, is there anything legal online music services can do to compete with free p2p networks? Discuss.

A ray of hope: Internet Radio Fairness Act .
Disappointed in the Librarian of Congress' recent imposition of high fees on web radio broadcasters and the resultant shutdown of many web radio broadcasts (including KIRO and KMTT in Seattle), U.S. Reps. Jay Inslee [right] (D-WA), George Nethercutt [below] (R-WA), and Rick Boucher (D-VA) introduced new legislation to change existing web radio laws.

Save internet radio
The [American] Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel ("CARP") is proposing to lawmakers that internet radio stations aught to pay royalties retroactive to 1998; royalties of .14¢ per song per listener for Internet-only webcasters, .07¢ per song per listener for broadcast radio simulcasts, and .02¢ per song per listener for non-commercial radio simulcasts.
Most stations are operating on zero financing. Do the math; .02¢ x 12 songs per hour and 100 listeners..
Don't let this spell the end of internet radio. Please, go to the site and click

"...The Copyright Office followed almost to the letter the RIAA's wish list."
The final nail may be about to be driven into the coffin of online music streaming in the US, as the Copyright Office issued its notice of proposed rulemaking on the issue. The proposed rules are extremely favorable to the RIAA, to the point where many streamers are saying they'll simply have to shut down. Even worse, any ruling will be retroactive to 1998, and streamers will have to pay the announced rate on everything they've streamed since that year.

is the best Internet-radio I've heard yet. It's mostly trance stuff, but if you bitch enough on the forums
, you might get a house track or two played. Just good stuff.
