The Great to Good Manifesto

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, as the globe struggles with an 
| historic economic decline, it's time for a 
| new revolution. I'd like to advance a 
| hypothesis: Today's great competitive 
| challenge isn't going from Good to Great. 
| For people, companies, and countries, it's 
| going from great to good. 
| [...]
| Call it the First Law of 21st Century 
| Economics: today's great challenge isn't 
| making the same old toxic junk, whether 
| CDOs, Hummers, or soda, more efficiently â 
| it's making stuff that's not toxic junk in 
| the first place. That's the challenge of 
| going from great to good â and becoming what 
| I've been calling a "Constructive 
| Capitalist."


Four analogies to clean energy

,----[ Quote ]
| When I think about the political fortunes of 
| open access, I find that I compare them 
| privately to the political fortunes of clean 
| energy.  I know there are differences, but I 
| keep returning to the similarities. 
| I'm not ready to say that the similarities are 
| more salient than the differences.  But it's 
| time to get these analogies out in the open.



Public Domain Manifesto

,----[ Quote ]
| The Public Domain is the rule, copyright
| protection is the exception. Since
| copyright protection is granted only with
| respect to original forms of expression,
| the vast majority of data, information and
| ideas produced worldwide at any given time
| belongs to the Public Domain. In addition
| to information that is not eligible for
| protection, the Public Domain is enlarged
| every year by works whose term of
| protection expires. The combined
| application of the requirements for
| protection and the limited duration of the
| copyright protection contribute to the
| wealth of the Public Domain so as to ensure
| access to our shared culture and knowledge.
