This is the most dangerous man of the world. The world of copyright and musicbiz. It's Justin Frankel, the guy who both invented Winamp and later on he founded Gnutella. And all this surely did evolved the use of p2p. The latter he did in secret when hired by AOL which is put a Robin Hood-feel on the story. Born as a kind of 'white trash', living on the road in a mobile home and from a family stuck in the hippie-era his ways in the programming biz was the punker's.
And once a punk, always a punk and Justin Frankel is having new ideas, and since both the Winamp, and Spinner as well as his self-made Shoutcast is owned by AOL and since this company is slowly dying, Frankel is leaving.
