I was just having lunch with my son Tom, who is 12, and I told him that I was going to send him an e mail and he replied that his gmail account was full. Full? I told him that he´s probably one of the only people who have so much e mail that gmail gets full and he replied that he and his friends all had the same problem. Why? Because they use gmail as the new P2P. They send each other songs and compressed movie files over gmail.
In any case, I hope I am more successful about the condom talk next year as I was with this year with my explanation on music and movie commercial licensing policies. If my school gets a book and we all read it, he said, why shouldn´t one of us buy a CD and we all enjoy it?
