Side where you will when it comes to Israel vs. Palestine, but I do think it’s an encouraging sign that, content aside (and for many of us, I know, that’s a big aside), Hamas is launching their own, home-grown film studio in Gaza.  Why encouraging?  Film-making is a slow, arduous process!  I know we’d all rather have Mahmoud al-Zahar polishing his latest screenplay and fretting about distribution costs than plotting coups and ordering missile strikes.  In fact, I’m sure I’ve got an old copy of Story around here, somewhere.  If any of you have an address for Mr. Zahar, I’d happily mail it to him!

Here’s a real showstopper of a post about the Pirate Bay, written by Janko Roettgers:

Much has been written in recent weeks about the future of The Pirate Bay, as well as about BitTorrent piracy in general. The sale of the site spooked some, while others are hoping to transform the new Pirate Bay into a legitimate, multimillion-dollar business. One aspect that has been largely overlooked is that the current Pirate Bay, due to the nature of P2P, is actually a relatively small and cost-efficient operation. The site?
