Anyway. Then I opened a window. Brrrr. *closes window with speedy speed*
I have to go out in that shortly, to have my teeth probed. Insult to injury. That is no way to spend a day off.
In other news:
- A Harvard Study Finds Weaker Copyright Protection Has Benefited Society. I haven't read the whole report yet, but it looks very interesting. For a value of interesting in which I'm a giant nerd about copyright. :)
- And in the kind of timing that is freakishly common on the intertubes, imeem are shutting down their user-generated content areas; in other words, getting rid of songvids. If you have songvids there, you need to move them by the end of the month. Other fan-friendly sites are discussed in this post: Copyright Policies: Blip.TV, BAM Video Vault & Viddler. You can get good general info from vidding.
- And speaking of user-generated content, the Pirate Bay's YouTube Competitor is "Coming Soon".
Interesting times, people! In-ter-esting times.
- In happier news, the Tardis Big Bang has opened. \o/
- And speaking of Torchwood, I finished reading Almost Perfect. You were all correct. It is one of the best tie-in novels I've read. The genderfuck actually made me laugh instead of cringe, which I admit I had thought a distinct possibility. A lot of tie-in writers handle fannish cliches very very badly. But no! It is a delightful confection with many funny bon mots.
- I have also finished off reccing Stargate: Atlantis and Star Trek: Reboot on crack_van. Just in time to be pinged for Merlin in July. <-- This is me in lurk mode, with no energy to do anything. LOL.
I'm kind of tired of lurk mode; I miss you all, you know. Bah. Having no energy is VERY ANNOYING.
