☞ Three Frees for Independence Day

Great analysis of the folly of the laws proposed in Brazil that makes President Lula's decision to block them, announced at FISL, seem obviously right.
The Free Software Foundation in europe bids farewell to their founder and forms a whole new leadership team. Georg has done great things and has been a pleasure to work with, so the new team has a high benchmark set for them.
Gladwell has the same class of questions as I did when I read the article in Wired that Anderson expanded to make this book. They are "but what about infrastructure costs", "who pays to have it made in a world where people don't trust extended effects". He misses my question "doesn't the 'Free' in software refer to liberty rather than cost and isn't that what drives the power curve?" I'll still have to buy & read the book though (it's not free).
