Many years ago, before he became a very famous Hollywood movie star, Anthony Hopkins was a musician. He wrote a waltz that he has never heard himself, because he was so afraid to make it public. Finally after so many years, he finally mustered the courage to ask a world-famous conductor to play it. Watch this video as Anthony Hopkins listens to his own music for the first time. The lesson? Never be afraid to follow your own passion, because that is how you were made, and that is how to glorify it.

Tim Kuik is te gast in de allereerste ThePostOnline-tv Talkshow. Gepresenteerd door: Theodor Holman en Bert Brussen. Kuik lijkt te begrijpen dat zonder legaal alternatief voor sommige producten, piraterij veel begrijpelijker is. Ook lijkt hij te zien dat EIGEN werk niet alsnog belast kan worden of idiote download verboden (Godzijdank!). Helaas Helemaal niets over zijn Embed-belasting, de eeuwigdurende en brede interpretatiebij inning van rechten (ergo: het failliet achter het hele idee van ip rechten/patenten). Maar beter een eerste gesprek als een start. Dialoog is beter dan maar rechtzaken voeren in de media (huidige trend).
Tijd dat Kuik eens dit videootje ziet van Andy Baio’s (Waxy) “The New Prohibition” speech:
