We had a big fuss about PIPA and SOPA. It has gone quiet, but it’s still bubbling under, whether through that legislation or another. Clay Shirky has, as ever, some views.
Just as an aside, what a great week of meetings I had last week – topics included getting greyhound racing recognised as an Olympic sport and how the cloud, data protection, free will and Terry Pratchett’s disk and turtle are all kind of connected. You know who you are and thank you for being the opposite of boring!
