SEVERE TIRE DAMAGE IN THE CHEIFET LETTER
"Music groups from around the world are posting their songs on IUMA. It has become a form of music self-publishing allowing any group to distribute their songs electronically. However, the group Severe Tire Damage went one step further. They actually "broadcast" a live concert on the Internet, real-time audio and video, as an unofficial opening act for the recent Rolling Stones debut session on the Internet. The audio quality is marginal, the video has a slow frame rate, and you need mega hardware to play this game, but the idea is obviously very cool. As one of the members of the band said--right now there aren't locks on the Internet and so we can do what we want."
