Well that's a piece of IP (intellectual property) that's got to cost a lot and probably has already been sold to some big movie studio. Good thinking though!
This is so cool!! Wonder who wrote it.
mine is more realistic, but that's a really good idea. Maybe i will put this in writing-prompts!

Woman with ‘mutant’ gene who feels no pain and heals without scarring discovered by scientists by portcity in WritingPrompts
I don't think a streaming platform costs $10k, I think you can do it for far less than that .. but maybe i'm wrong!
But yeah, i think piracy, decentralization is really important in terms of keeping media alive and accessible for generations. It's basically our version of the library of Alexandria. As soon as netflix goes out of business (which i suspect will be sooner than people think), think of how fast allllllll that content will just disappear.
Yeah, Prism figures into my new movie. Really bad stuff man.

Wow! This is awesome! Maybe we need to start a wiki for the podcasts sub and add this incredible post to it? What do you think?
By the way, I have a really good plan to start bringing more users to the site, and I'm actively working on it, but it's the kind of thing that I have to roll out carefully and it may take a week or two or three to get rolling initially. So just because it may look like I'm not doing anything, I am! I'm just trying to do it right. I'll let you know once the trap has been set as it were lololol
Well good point. You've got to remember she's in her 70's and it's mediated through some journalist sooo ...
Hmmm, maybe ... although I doubt they'd get it so wrong and make an arrest, right? After so long?
That explains why ... on a really interesting twitter thread where this producer was talking about how soon all the streaming sites are gonna go out of business and then we wont have access to all the content they own cuz no one will have downloaded it, someone pointed out that some of the early Dr. Who's are only available via audio recordings that fans recorded off their TV's like on tape recorders :)
