“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • Spring break came waaaaay too late this year. I'm ready for summer vacation, not the final push of reading and writing. That said, in the last few days I read a bunch of things about media and technology, and about Ms.45, but I still felt like I'd rather be riding my bike, or on a beach.
  • I also listened to "Compensation, Access, and Theft: Copyright in the 21st Century" a panel that I was sad I had to miss.
    • I thought that the points that Karl Fogel made about OA/CC released works being able to be shared were great, and have experienced that this is definitely the case with my own work (the Readers' Bill of Rights for Digital Books is CC Attribution Share-Alike and has now been translated into more languages than I can keep track of).
    • I also liked how Karl talked about the fact that he wanted to be able to do with books what he could with F/OSS code: copy it, edit it, remix it, etc.
