Iain posted posted a link to Dear Rockers, a website that encourages you to repent your music-stealing sins and send $5 direct to the musicians who have made an impact on your life but for whose music you haven’t paid. It’s interesting that record companies have got themselves into a position to be so hated.

But it then sent me off looking for the chap behind the site, Darren Barefoot, who, it turns out, is the same guy behind Get A First Life, which lampoons that other life. For all my rants on Second Life I had seen and forgotten about Get A First Life. It’s quite an amusing one-page gag, but actually Darren’s more detailed breakdown of his critique of SL is worth reading.
