RE: OCLC turns evil (was ISO turns evil?)
I recommend the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path, personally. Professionally? The sudden and pervasive presence of global networked communications to the scale of the local desktop has created a percolation of intellectual property laws, practices and goals. While this creates uncertainty, it creates opportunity and the opportunistic will pursue these. So far, normal. A little further on will be a reordering of the property laws to balance the system, but that doesn't happen while the pot is at full boil. Neither ISO nor the OCLC are evil; just a bit misguided, so the problem is not defeating evil, but guidance. Patience and focus. Good things will come of this. len From: Simon St.Laurent [mailto:simonstl@s...] In today's New York Times: ---------------------------------------- Where Did Dewey File Those Law Books? http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/23/nyregion/23DEWE.html By MICHAEL LUO Who knew that someone owned the Dewey Decimal System?
