Afternoon Reading

I’m going to fucking edify you whether you like it or not.  These aren’t particularly game-related.

  • Wildcard:  I linked to Guerrilla News back when they published a report called Coca-Karma, which related the tale of one Bob Kolody who inadvertently came to own Coca-Cola’s trademarks.  I don’t remember what I said about it at the time, but I thought it was a great story.  I’m a person who believes steadfastly that an array of firm penises hover in the periphery, poised to screw the reasonable and the sensible people of the Earth.  A tale that pits big guys against little guys is always delicious to me, because it confirms my deepest suspicions:  that the universe is cosmically, irrevocably, now and forever the story of concentrated power and the dark shadows it casts.

    I ran a little long there.

    I don’t put a lot of stock in Coca-Karma anymore, if I ever did - but proof of its veracity would not shock me overmuch.  Likewise, I don’t put any stock in Guerilla News’ latest action/adventure serial, Wildcard.  That does not, however, affect its being a fascinating yarn!  Ride with GNN’s Sander Hicks on a wild safari through the vaguely credible.

  • Piracy Of Intellectual Property On Peer-to-Peer Networks:  That seems like a pretty dry title, and for many people this may not go down smooth.  These are transcripts of an oversight hearing on Peer-to-Peer Piracy that has some all-star players in there.  This is but the first item in the list - literate netizens might also be intrigued by other digital liberty issues, recorded farther down.
