The most important thing to know is that you are in the Prisoner's Dilemma.
If you are unaware you are in the situation, you may make the wrong choice. The other side will make a choice that neutralizes you and puts you at great disadvantage.
We may be watching a situation that will be classic in terms of recognition, or rather lack of recognition that one is in the situation. One side made the choice the other did not.
The Prisoner's Dilemma puzzle is taught in strategy classes as part of the MBA curriculum at university.
This post will be reviewed in a few months.

Several times this year the Wall Street Journal has profiled the Hydrox brand of cookies. It was implied that this brand would again be available in August of 2008. The question is, where are they? Not seeing them in any supermarket or super centers here in Michigan.
Look forward to trying the original Hydrox cookies when they finally gain distribution.
Thanks for reading this message.

Giant of Internet Radio Nears Its 'Last Stand' Pandora, Other Webcasters Struggle Under High Song Fees
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Pandora is one of the nation's most popular Web radio services, with about 1 million listeners daily. Its Music Genome Project allows customers to create stations tailored to their own tastes. It is one of the 10 most popular applications for Apple's iPhone and attracts 40,000 new customers a day.
Yet the burgeoning company may be on the verge of collapse, according to its founder, and so may be others like it.
"We're approaching a pull-the-plug kind of decision," said Tim Westergren, who founded Pandora. "This is like a last stand for webcasting."
This will be big news now that the main stream media is covering. It seems that Internet radio is under full assault. Pandora is one of the top apps for the Apple iPhone.
Expect this to be a trending topic on blogs next week. The furor over this could shake things up. Where do Obama and McCain stand on this and similar issues?
