Uh-uh. Free will always be taken for granted. We only care about the
things that we have to work for. 'Tis the nature of the beast. If the
Aston Martin Volante suddenly becomes free, it will simply cease to be as
desirable an automobile. -Everybody- will be driving one. Ho hum.

Boring, boring, boring.

Exclusivity is interesting. We care about things that are unique, hard to
attain and special. Personally I'm glad that we are attracted to the
novel-- it keeps us moving. Free is boring.

And to repeat:

Boring, boring, boring.

You can have your free boring boring Napster and your free boring boring
'freeness,' and your free boring boring 'transparent,' no secrets, no
mystery, no special, bland boring boring grey boring flat flatness.
