Cory Doctorow cuts to the heart of the matter, as usual. Great read.

The High Priests of IT — And the Heretics
Cory rocking, as usual. +1 on the virtualization angle. FTA: 'The fact is that the most dreadful violators of corporate policy ... are also the most enthusiastic users of technology, the ones most apt to come up with the next out-of-left-field efficiency for the firm. There has to be a way to bring those people inside the church, rather than going to war against them. I suspect the answer is in modern virtualization tools, which allow users to have a "clean" OS and environment that they use for in-compliance processing and work, and a "wild" sandbox where anything goes, each on separate network segments.'

Locus Online: Cory Doctorow -- Macropayments
Some good points. I've enjoyed watching Cory develop his argument that the whole "information economy" idea in general (including micropayments) is a mostly misapplied metaphor.
