I (Heart) Spool

It's not that I'm against Cory Doctorow's pointless ranting as a matter of principle (although I've commented on his zealot stance in a few other occasions), but when someone points out the obvious exaggerations (and mistakes) in both his latest (over)reaction and Slashdot's agitprop-like twist with both quickness of wit and economy of words, you've just got to say "well done".

Plus, the tattoo bit was right on the money.

That said, it's Monday, and, as usual on Mondays, there was a good deal of entropy to deal with so I didn't pay much attention to the news. Except for the Goldfish, which is, well... an art piece - which simply begs the pun that it, too, has prior art.
