Why a $150 million Star Wars game is going free - CNN

Why a $150 million Star Wars game is going free - CNN | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
It's a straightforward economics problem. The subscription business model cuts off casual players, who can't justify paying $15 a month (particularly in this tough economy) for a game they only touch on occasion. That leaves the hard-core players, who are often reluctant to split their time between more than one or two MMOs at a time.

Ten Citations on peer to peer spirituality

Ten Citations on peer to peer spirituality | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“I prefer to think of the spiritual development of human culture as rooted in degrees of relational, moral insight and not in an evolutionary logic. Evolution as a concept seems best left to natural processes. Otherwise intellectual bids to know what evolution is up to?and what is coming next culturally,?rapidly convert into hegemonic arrogance and attempts at social and intellectual control. The developing of the human spirit in cultural forms is a different category and is very close in my view to the way in which our realization of an extended doctrine of rights, in theory and practice, unfolds.

And to a quote often attributed to Thomas Jefferson: "An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people."
