"A Stradivarius is way better than what violin makers of today build"
is not what I wrote and certainly not what I meant.
And yes, there's lot of hype and a lot of ill-founded aversion to
contemporary technology. I'm pretty sure that if some violin maker
would discover a way to use some of today's high-tech materials
to build a really good violin, most of the 'well-thinking' music
world would want to burn him at the stake (along with his violins).
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
