Oh come on , there are tons of interconnectiveness ...its fork by jimminy.

Mozart was tormented by the iron fisted demands and laws of his
surroundings.In particular he was really messed up over his dads
expectations and "thtas the way things are done" attitude. Also, dig the
way the various kings of his times tied to tie him down for thier own

Napster, born of the net and a decaying music biz, is tomented by both. It
is on the surface a simple extension of its parnets but by its very nature
is the the polar extreem of its parnets desires. The music biz can be seen
as the roayl system opf patronage bondage (Riia as the churches officals
who sought to reign in wolfys wild talent)

Napster seem also to be on the road to be burnt out by its own success. It
will be hailed for many years as the spark that caughtthe attention of the
world just as mozarts "tunes" where whistled by all and sundry.

Napster will also die in a horrible gut twisted internal death. If its
death can produce another requiem like mozy's did I am sure it will be
distrbed by the nexests bestes (freenet or gnutella)

Mozy had peers, napster has peers. they play off each other, borrow from
each other, and some it seem will have violent jelous tirades to expouse
against it.

There, that wasnt too hard
