therefore if wordpress.com were to allow mp3s it would pretty soon become the filestore of choice for every mp3-sharing blogger out there, whether they blog here or not.
I hear it wank. WordPress is the best blog server on the web because wordpress bloggers care for our Art. It would break my heart to see the place get over-run by people who neither care for, nor contribute to, the wordpress community.
I just happen to like Music. And have long wanted to thread the sounds that move my friends & me into a multi-modal literary experience.
For Art's Sake.
Not to sit around and give someone else's work away.
But sometimes that means I gotta play We Are Family in the middle of a blog post! Now, I don't foresee a thousand Disco Fiends bowling my site over to get their hands on a free copy of that particular Mp3.
It's an In-The-Moment thing between my readers & myself. Uploading isn't illegal -- right? Until there's unauthorized duplication.
Here's an idea:
Can we equip WP blogs with a streaming format option for music that may be copyrighted?
I just want to see wordpress sing!
