Microsoft contracts nasty disease in Iceland!
Iceland's economy is in ruins. And Microsoft is not in a mood to help failing Icelandic businesses. In fact, S.Mccarthy reports in his blog that Microsoft has contracted Syphilis! I cannot stress how important this is. In a world fueled by digital transactions made possible by software it is no longer acceptable that the necessary infrastructure be subject to the whims of economic skull-*****rs. We cannot afford to pay for things that can be copied at zero marginal cost, and any country that is forced to do so will have to pay with their freedom. Mahatma Gandhi spoke of Swadeshi, meaning economic independence and sustainability. In the aftermath of this financial crisis Iceland, and every other polity, big and small, will have to move towards swadeshi, and that means taking back their infrastructure. All of it.
