Online Music Piracy Doesn’t Hurt Sales, European Commission Finds New research published by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre shows that online piracy doesn't hurt digital music revenues. The researchers examined browsing habits from 16,000 Europeans and found that there's a positive link between online piracy and visits to legal music stores, irrespective of people's interest in music. The study concludes that the music industry should not see piracy as a growing concern. Research into online piracy comes in all shapes and sizes, often with equally mixed results. The main question often is whether piracy is hurting sales. A new study by The Institute for Prospective Technological Studies, which is part of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, tackled this question in a unique way.

Dr. Judith Rich: 10 Essential Values for Living a Transformed Life, No. 1: Accepting Personal Responsibility In my post last week, "2012: Ushering in the 100th Monkey," I identified 10 values essential for aligning one's consciousness with the principles of transformation. In that these values do not constitute an exhaustive list, I invited readers to include others and I've even thought of a few more of my own. In the next few weeks, I'd like to examine each of these more closely so that as we navigate this year of 2012 we are orienting our consciousness and behavior in the direction of the paradigm shift that is the promise and the possibility of this time. Keeping in mind an essential principle that governs human behavior -- consciousness aligns with itself -- there needs to be a critical mass, or a convergence of energy, thought and consciousness coalescing around a single idea or possibility in order for any kind of collective shift to occur. Consider the Arab Spring or the Occupy movements that seemed to appear out of nowhere. How did this movement take birth so quickly?

Evolutionary game theory Evolutionary game theory (EGT) is the application of game theory to evolving populations of lifeforms in biology. EGT is useful in this context by defining a framework of contests, strategies, and analytics into which Darwinian competition can be modelled. EGT originated in 1973 with John Maynard Smith and George R. Price's formalisation of the way in which such contests can be analysed as "strategies" and the mathematical criteria that can be used to predict the resulting prevalence of such competing strategies. Evolutionary game theory differs from classical game theory by focusing more on the dynamics of strategy change as influenced not solely by the quality of the various competing strategies, but by the effect of the frequency with which those various competing strategies are found in the population. Evolutionary game theory has proven itself to be invaluable in helping to explain many complex and challenging aspects of biology.

My hero in my teenage years, while most of my contemporaries were demonstrating against the US war in Vietnam, was the greatest cowboy star of them all, John Wayne. When I was 16, he gave me a job. I admired him, and I still do.
