Sad news: p2pnet.net shutting down, or going on hiatus

I just learned that the excellent site, p2pnet.net, published by outstanding writer, digital music expert, and human being Jon Newton, is shutting down for lack of funds:

"p2pnet – last post"

Jon has been a great friend to "Recording Industry vs. The People" and to the victims of the RIAA's mean spirited litigation campaign. And he is a great friend to me.

I hope donations flow in, and/or he finds another way to continue his important work.

Thankfully, the financial entry barriers to publishing aren't what they used to be, thanks to the internet, so it probably wouldn't take too much to get back p2pnet.net back up on its feet.

Thank you, Jon. Good luck with everything. Hope to see p2pnet.net back soon.

Your friend,
