Piracy is a kind of progressive taxation, which may shave a few percentage points off the sales of well-known artists (and I say "may" because even that point is not proven), in exchange for massive benefits to the far greater number for whom exposure may lead to increased revenues.

According to Tim O'Reilly. And William Gibson seems to agree. Yes Gibson finally has a blog (though the manual typewriter thing hasn't been true for many years. And he's now alongside Samual Pepys in the blogs-I-can't-yet-read-as-LJ-feeds list. As is Neal Gaiman's blog, since the feed is one of the several I've signed up for which don't seem to work :-( I'm now getting Warren Ellis' Die Puny Humans, though - which rocks.

So that'll be enough to keep me busy for a while. Meanwhile, here's some ideas of what I might be doing in the next couple of weeks...

I have very little money right now (surprise) so I'm looking for stuff to do that doesn't cost a lot. Fortunately Buffy is starting next week, so that's Thursday taken care of for a bit. Does anyone want to come round ours to watch it?

I've also found out that our local video shop is half price on Tuesday and Thursday, so I want to get a few things out once a week (at least until we run out of things they stock that we want to watch, which won't take long. Does anyone fancy seeing The Time Machine, Minority Report (which I've seen and would be happy to see again), Scooby Doo (!) or Mulholland Drive?

This Saturday is Ascension in Teviot, which I am definitely going to, with giant boots with spikes on. I may also make it to sparklegoth's first, though that might involve me in either putting on my boots there or breaking my leg...
