Two great articles that I highly recommend:

- Fight For Newspapers: “Cut back on the quality of a newspaper in order to show an impressive short-term return for the market’s sake, and the slide toward disaster has begun.

- Digital Rights In Question As Business Model: required reading for any major label (not to mention Steve Jobs and Bill Gates).  Whether they finally get the point is another matter.
