No French Flat Fee

March 14, 2006 | By |

France was so, so close introducing a culture flat fee, which would have legalized file-sharing & helped artists get more money for their work. Sadly, the parliament turned the proposal down – while the opposition left the room in protest.

Oh no, not again. No good: Kensingtion Locks can be opened with a roll of toilet paper.

Update: Cebit 1.9

March 14, 2006 | By |

I gotta apologize: There was (at least) one obviously excellent Web2.0 talk at the Cebit. Stephan Baumann (Computational Culture) spoke about mash-ups, remixing culture, social software. the talk is available as an mp3 here (in German), or as a PDF here (in English). Both are great.

Thanks, Andreas. I had missed out on this one. (Glück auf!)
