I found this reading very interesting. The author presents a good point in his discovery of values that can be attached to moniker of ‘free’ This reading is especially pertinent in an age where so much is available to us in return for so little. Case in point, the biggest thing holding me back from unlimited and constant music downloads is the space available on my hard drive. So why, or how, would or should I pay for music? The answers are embedded in Kelly’s essay. Although I had never attached a name to it, I’ve found that much of his nomenclature holds true in my daily life. Buying records, going to concerts, paying for live recordings– all of these phenomena can be chalked up to terms as defined by Kevin Kelly.
