What’s On Your Desktop?

Sebastian asked, so here’s what is on the machine at home. From Edward Gorey’s Gashleycrumb Tinies.

From a Sept. 19 press conference by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

Freedom of expression should be and must be guaranteed and protected, when they are used for common justice, common purpose. When some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others’ values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected in such a way. So, my position is that freedom of expression, while it is a fundamental right and privilege, should not be abused by such people, by such a disgraceful and shameful act.

Good luck making that fly here, my friend.

You Can’t Make Up Irony Like This

Anti-intellectual-property advocate and Piratenpartei Deutschland executive committee member Julia Schramm lands a  €100,000 book deal. Someone who agrees that “information wants to be free!” uploads a .pdf copy to a file-sharing server and spreads the link around. Schramm issues DMCA takedown notice.

It really doesn’t get any funnier than that, people. Capitalism FTW!


H/T to Marko.

I’m waiting for an asteroid to crash on my Jeep any second now.

I personally think it’ a solution looking for a non-existent problem, but hey – if you like the concept buy one!
