- My wife made me canvass for Obama; here's what I learned
Lovely and slightly unexpected personal story.
- Enormously important news from the Free Software Foundation
Lessig points to the FSF's compromise which allows Wikipedia to switch to Creative Commons licensing. Hugely important news that could have a wide impact.
- Disease on rise as food use-by dates ignored
The problem is we all know the dates are very conservative and designed to sell more food, so we all stretch them.
- Apple: Large, Goliath-Sized Apple Tells Small, David-Sized School to Stop Using Logo
Shallow and wrong item on Gizmodo. Look at the school's website and you'll see they trade off the combination of their logo with those from Adobe and Microsoft. There's an obvious scope for confusion, and Apple had to act. How many of these cases does it take before people begin to think about the trademark issue beyond "evil corporation always wrong to sue"?
