  1. Can’t comment on cell phone culture since I don’t own one. Same goes for popular culture since I neither have the time nor the inclination to watch television.
    The future of digital commons: We must have stringent anti-piracy laws. The rate at which music and films (books to a small extent) are pirated in our country there won’t be any industry left to churn out music. While spin doctors are weavers par excellance Bloggers are still at a nascent stage here.

  2. I agree with anti-piracy laws. But If some artists want to distribute their work free online then I think they should be allowed to do so.

  3. Though I have a cell phone, I find it a hindrance sumtimes. And now, because it is cheap and accessible to all classes of society, there has been a high rate of misuuse than using it for its intended purpose.
    ABout popluar culture, some programmes are interesting, but now, channels are willing to rope in a lot of sleaze and n u have more than willing chicks who will go thru with it. Disgusting
