My new theory: You can tell a lot about what a culture values by what it sells and what it gives away for free.

I’ve been playing around with iTunes lately, and something very disturbing just hit me: On iTunes U, you can download thousands of hours of actual lectures from Harvard/Yale/MIT/Stanford professors… all subjects, all free.

But the song “F**k You” by Cee Lo will set you back $1.29.

Not a good sign.
