New York Magazine has a very interesting interview online with Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Saul Williams.
The most interesting part is this:
"Trent: I'll admit I had an account there and frequented it quite often. At the end of the day, what made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store. Pretty much anything you could ever imagine, it was there, and it was there in the format you wanted. If OiNK cost anything, I would certainly have paid, but there isn't the equivalent of that in the retail space right now." ...
"People on those boards, they're grateful for the person that uploaded it — they're the hero. They're not stealing it because they're going to make money off of it; they're stealing it because they love the band. I'm not saying that I think OiNK is morally correct, but I do know that it existed because it filled a void of what people want."
Now if that ain't something :)
Everyone Digg it!
Get this article around as fast and far as you can.
Edit: Number #1 in Digg's Top10 with 1688 diggs right now :)
Also, please stop the discussion about who invited Trent and what his username could have been. It doesn't matter at all.
