Phew, that was quite a pause…a very busy end of term in my MBA (almost done now, looks like the summer will be the end!) and a new contract with Cenzic, doing product development for an interesting new website security product.

Another thing that I’ve been doing is talking with Smart Mediary Systems who is doing some great things in the legal publishing arena. They are doing very sane things with DRM in that they are doing what works – get the content, offer ways to manage it well, put protection that works but is not onerous, listen to your customers and give them what they want. Basically the opposite from Movielink. (I tried them and it’s a long story but basically they wouldn’t refund me $2.99 even though the system ran aground on technical issues – well, maybe they will, but they want me to phone them about it. Who has time for that kind of thing?)
