So Tell Me ... What's The Weather Like on YOUR Planet?

Okay, this amused me.

History Repeats Itself: How The RIAA Is Like 17th Century French Button-Makers.

I'm going to have to go through and read the linked related articles at some point when I'm not supposed to be packing for a trip -- abundance in economic theory is oddly topical for me. (For some context, I wrote an article for an anthology about wealth magic, and the piece was basically about accepting abundance.)

I, too, have other things higher on my priority list, and will have to read the article series later - but I thank you for putting me onto them! (Yep, I find economics as interesting as the interpenetration of sex/magic/religion.)

I've been making Heinlein-derived allusions to buggy-whip manufacturers and makers of coal-oil lamps regarding the RIAA for some years now,

Well, now I know how to say "customized t-shirt" in Portuguese.

In re my earlier comment, later came sooner than I expected. I had to do some, ahem, digging, on TechDirt to make sure I got the whole series - the final article, with the complete list of earlier installments, is here: http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20070503/012939.shtml

A related article of interest that I also found: http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20070227/172904.shtml

(I really need to take some time to commit a bunch of HTML code to memory.)

I netted all sorts of other goodies by following the links in the articles - economics-geekgasm!

Ooh, my first spammer. I'll just tidy that up.
