In college, I took an ‘Introduction to Computers’ type of class which was a prerequisite for all students. As personal computers and technology become more and more integrated into our education systems (as well as personal lives), I fully supported the notion that all students should posses at least a basic understanding of computers. One of the most important lessons I learned in that class was to BACK UP EVERYTHING. My teacher often told us, “If it’s not saved in two locations – it doesn’t exist.”
Perhaps Sonny Moore (aka Skrillex) skipped that day, but there’s no excuse for complete and utter loss of data – even if it means hardware has been stolen. According to various blogs across the internet, apparently Sonny’s personal laptop that he uses for producing tracks has been stolen – and there’s no backup. The person who stole the laptop has uploaded a track Skrillex was working on, titled Died This Way, a remix of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way.
Tough luck, Skrillex- I sincerely feel bad for the loss of your personal possessions but perhaps this will be a learning experience….
