Pirates

Scott is an expert software developer with over 30 years experience, specialising in education, automation and remote data.

Reading this post on pirates today by Wil Wheaton made me think of an interesting analogy.

If we want to stop bittorrent just because it could be used for pirates, wouldn't that mean we have to stop people using boats?

Maybe a similar analogy is a walled garden, where maybe we allow boats, but they can't leave the lake. No one is allowed in the ocean :-)
