☞ Eclipse, Privacy and Poetry
By webmink on May 02, 2009
Unrest in the Eclipse community. I wonder if the Board over there will entertain this sort of discussion? Good test.
It takes stunts like this to show legislators and judges just how much we need our privacy protected. My preferred solution: make clear that all personal information is the copyright of the person involved and that all uses require a license under current, draconian copyright laws.
Britain has a new Poet Laureate (the one we should have got last time) in Carol Ann Duffy. This collection of her poetry contains plenty that is dark and searing, but I'm in no doubt that she is Britain's greatest living poet. Try "Mrs Lazarus" for reflection on the end of a relationship, "Anne Hathaway" for a delicious yet wistful look at the depths of love. Essential addition to your collection if you read poetry.
