Quote of the day

Came across a quote today and thoughts led to how it's a pretty good summation of why I'm against DRM.

Immature artists imitate, mature artists steal."
Lionel Trilling
literary critic


After all, something informs everything.

Unless you've never read a book, seen a movie, watched tv, or interacted with anything other than yourself. (Human beings are things too, ok.) At this point, if I offended any blog reading amoebae, I'm sorry. Should have known that even amoeba aren't spared by the media.

My favourite quote on this subject is still one by the guy who taught me about it.

Stop intellectual property from infringing on me."
Fred LeMaster
cute geek boy


As always, don't let me give your all the rong ideas. Go get your own.
