Some Sunday morning reading to share.
The New York Times on how the Google-Viacom fight is going to lead to copyright chaos. You mean we aren’t already there?
The Ol’ Bait and Click. Interesting article in the Washington Post about online scamming. Amazing the lengths criminals will go to and the energy they expend.
David Levine on the “revolution” that is digital media and the control of it, and how it can be seen through the context of history. Oh, yeah, that. History. We don’t pay attention to that anymore. Too bad. Great article.
So the Palestinian’s form a unity government. We love to export democracy and see it as the solution for so much. Only problem is, we don’t like it when our export takes on a life of its own. Which it always seems to do.
A passenger dies on a trans-Atlantic flight and British Airways straps the corpse into a First Class seat. Got to be a better way to upgrade. Via Boing Boing.
I love the beginning of this MSNBC/Newsweek article: The New York Times and the government of Iran agree: the movie “300” has no redeeming social value. Well if all sides of the spectrum are disagreeing, I guess the filmmakers did something right. From the looks of the box office take. I think they did hit on something. Cartoon violence and made up history are more fun than the real thing.
