Le News, Thursday Feb. 8

Posted by Jer / February 8, 2007

Here's what's happening today that may or may not matter to you:

The mayor of Montreal wants more money (mostly from Charest). The universities want more money (mostly from students). Students want to pay less money (mostly to universities), so they can have more money.

Videtron and Shaw, in an attempt to make even more money off Canadians without returning any of it to the very industry they should be trying to foster, have taken the illegal action of not contributing to the Canadian Television Fund this year. Call your service provider and tell them to smarten up.

David Suzuki dropped by the Montreal Gazette yesterday. Wanna know what he said? Hear the audio of it here. I haven't listened to it, but my guess is that he told them climate change is not as big a deal as all our politicians are making it out to be.

Steve Jobs recently said he'd be happy to consider providing DRM-free music (i.e. music without proprietary digital rights management systems like iTunes has), if only the major labels would cooperate. In response, the major labels said that they will not cooperate, giving yet another indication they are no longer interested in actually selling music.

A Montreal publisher is considering publishing OJ Simpson's magnum opus If I did it, Here's How it Happened. In related news, if I go kick this publisher in the balls, here's how I would do it.

Sergei Samsonov is still a Montreal Canadien. Park Avenue residents are still celebrating. The Arcade Fire is still playing. I still don't have tickets.
