The World NEXT ends 


This train of thought combines two (related) varieties of geek-ness: SciFi and Technology.

There's been a whole lot of discussion on how DRM, product registration, online validation, etc. are bad.

A key theme in many scifi novels/movies has been adventurers finding an ancient city/ship/device/etc. still running & workable after 100s/1000s/10,000s of years.

We've now pretty much built our IT infrastructure where that could NEVER happen.

Wouldn't it suck if you found the Guardian Of Forever or Atlantis, etc. and couldn't use them because a licensing server wasn't available?

I can't hear you. My head got stuck in a Chinese mechanical rice-picker.
