  1. Wow, I don't think I've found myself is such load disagreement with James. I think the FB study was research. I think that the OKCupid case is much less clear.
  2. "Google is not the Eye of Sauron, finding all that is good on the Internet and corrupting it. Nor, despite its mission "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful," is it humanity's informational savior. Google is a company that provides an enormously significant online service. When that service raises serious legal questions, we should ask whether it is good for the users or bad for the users."
  3. Polygen like generator for Upworthy headlines. Now I have to go find out what Upworthy is. Via Grimmellmann
  4. We all forget what the story of the Golden Goose was about. We've also forgotten its moral. James Grimmelmann reminds us: "In today’s overheated technology “economy,” venture capitalists are itinerant axemen, always on the prowl for geese to chop open. That’s how they work. They find a product, a service, a community that has about it something magical, and they shove money down its throat. But because they expect to be repaid, either the goose accelerates its egg-laying exponentially or out comes the axe. The goose only rarely survives; the magic never does."
  5. James Grimmellmann argues that Google is a company that is out of control in regards to privacy. It's hard to disagree with him!
  6. NIce personal perspective on the person behind the Tiger Mother stuff that seems to annoyed everybody.
  7. I'm not so mad I never went to law school.
  8. This, more than anything else, makes me want to reconsider my academic trajectory.
  9. Stephen Wolfram, the guy behind Mathematica and A New Kind of Science, is working on a “new paradigm for using computers and the web.” If it’s anything like Mathematica, it could be a Google-killer. If it’s anything like A New Kind of Science, Google (and everyone else) has nothing to fear. We shall see.

  11. "Paul Goldstein says that copyright isn’t expanding; that’s just an optical illusion. It’s technology that’s expanding, and that’s just bringing the rest of us into contact with copyright, which is right where it’s always been."
