    So, so tired of big business, copyright, patent, etc. greed.  How did we get to the point where creators don’t matter, but only the ones with the most expensive lawyers, win?  I despair.

    The actual quote is “I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.” The use of “sorry” and “afraid” spoken in HAL’s calm monotone voice make the line seem pretty creepy after his just having murdered Frank and the other three crewmen and his condemning Dave to a certain death.

    Fighting for information’s freedom isn’t the point. It’s people’s freedom that matters.

    Yes, christ, thank you
