    The flip side from Machiavelli . .There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.- Niccolo Machiavelli

    “Typing this on Felice’s new 24” iMac with the low-profile keyboard. Thought I’d dislike it, but I’m thinking of converting. With one’s fingers traveling so little, there appears to be less fatigue.”The intro says it all, we’re devolving. Laziness rules, exctinction will follow.Is conveinience progress?

    Lefsetz:”There’s never been a better time to be either a player or a businessman. Unfortunately, there’s no book to guide you, you’ll have to write your own.All of the continents may have been explored, but that doesn’t mean people don’t want to go on journeys, don’t want to be made to feel alive. Music has got this power. It’s your move.”I liked that quote, too.- Ethan

    Have you read last week’s Rick Rubin New York Times Magazine cover story? That, and this post make me skeptical that the music industry can survive the new digital challenges.http://webnewser.wordpress….

    What Darwin didn’t say in that quote (I have not, unfortunately, read the Origin of Species) is that it’s not merely the responsiveness to change, but the correct response to change. If you grow fur as a result of a heatwave, you’re dead.
