Hollywood Takes Anti-piracy Message to School

Hollywood Takes Anti-piracy Message to School
More coverage of the MPAA's propaganda campaign in the classroom. "The Motion Picture Association of America paid $100,000 to deliver its anti-piracy message to 900,000 students nationwide in grades 5-9 over the next two years, according to Junior Achievement Inc., which is implementing the program using volunteer teachers from the business sector." This is overt politicization of the classroom, a practice that should be resisted. More...

This paper can be tough going at times, especially near the end as it discusses the automated creation of metadata, but it provides a very nice overview describing the preparation and delivery of Italian legal information using a harvesting process. More...

Use of Stots TemplateMaster Woodworking Tool Limited to One Shop
I would like to say that this article demonstrates the absurity toward which our copyright and patent regime is pushing us, but there are many (including this company, obviously) who hail the new world order. Where pricing and quality have failed to produce customer loyalty, licensing agreements and the weight of law will surely succeed. More...

Click2learn and Docent Merger: Who Wins and Loses?

Click2learn and Docent Merger: Who Wins and Loses?
It's pretty hard to make a gazelle out of a greyhound and a rabbit, but Kevin kruse is willing to offer advice along those lines as he considers the implications of the Docent-Click2Learn merger. His advice: cut staff right away, release a product roadmap within 90 days, and promise support for existing products. More...

The 300 Games Every Game Developer (and Gamer) Should Know

The 300 Games Every Game Developer (and Gamer) Should Know
OK, it's nowhere near 300 games. And it's just a list; there is no real discussion. But the concept is worth a moment of your time, as it stretches your mind a bit to think of the different categories of games and of the unique properties possessed by each different type of game. Just for fun, also add the author's Talk Like a Gamer to your reading list. More...

Amazon's New Database Likely to Help Sales of Some Works, May Undermine Others

Amazon's New Database Likely to Help Sales of Some Works, May Undermine Others
That the Author's Guild is protesting against comes as no real surprise (certainly much less of a surprise than the Guild's last tiff with the online bookstore, in which they protested against the online sales of used books). The Guild contends that "these publishers do not have the right to participate in this program without their authors' permission." Of course, the publishers' permission may not be needed: Amazon is not providing access to the books, only short excerpts. More...

Connecting Learning Objects with RSS, Trackback, and Weblogs
Macromedia Breeze presentation of this now famous seminar. Well worth a look (and it's interesting how popular Breeze is getting for this sort of content - wish I could cut and paste from it; it's really annoying having to type the content out). More...
