So, what you're really saying, John, is that the porn industry adapts to new
technology first and uses the heck out of it, right? Isn't this the same as
demand, as in SUPPLY and DEMAND? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't
capitalism based on the providing technology to meet demand? If so, then it
looks to me like the porn industry is, however indirectly, creating the need
for new technology. I can't honestly say that I ever NEEDED high-bandwidth
bitstream video, ultra-high resolution graphics, and age filtering software
to do my work.

I'm not defending the industry, and I have never worked in it, some things
in your response just did not ring true with me, sorry.

The can opener was invented forty-four years after canned food.

Pornographers don't INVENT the technology, they only use it.
