As this article shows we, the masses, are finally making a dent in the ridiculous monopoly that is Ticketmaster. I hope everybody learns something from this namely: Monopolies promote crap service and higher cost while eliminating the competition which undermines the very industry in which they operate.
I think Microsoft (the worst monopoly ever) is finally feeling the effects of this with the onslaught of internet based software (Google) and slick design (Apple) which is good. The problem is both Google and Apple are trying (and succeeding I think) to create their own niche monopolies. Something to watch out for anyway.

This movie was pointed out to me a few weeks ago and I have finally got a chance to post it after spending my nights either house searching, driving, flying or camping. By now most people have probably seen it already but it is so good that it deserves to be posted again.
It is like a huge production but it is totally unplanned. Some tourists with a crappy video camera stumble upon several species of animals interacting in a violent but funny way. You just have to think that stuff like this must go on all the time without anyone noticing.
