I’m a guy who doesn’t see anything good having come from the Internet… [The Internet] created this notion that anyone can have whatever they want at any given time. It’s as if the stores on Madison Avenue were open 24 hours a day. They feel entitled. They say, ‘Give it to me now,’ and if you don’t give it to them for free, they’ll steal it.
— Sony CEO Howard Stringer, who apparently doesn’t like the unprecedented freedom that the Internet has created for people all over the world. Typical whining from a powerful media executive who wants to be able to control everything.
