May I just say that I'm REALLY glad that most musicians don't think like Howard V. Hendrix, who claims that people who provide free content online are "webscabs"?
Fortunately, John Scalzi tore him several new and interesting orifices over this nonsense.
(Stross, Scalzi... I'm starting to notice that SF writers are REALLY good bloggers. Or maybe vice versa in Scalzi's case. Old Man's War was a great read.)
