The End Of Copyright
« on: June 19, 2007, 11:31:51 am »
I have always maintained that, "That which is unusual eventually becomes usual"
Remembering when I started a no red meat diet in the early 80's some of my friends took great delight in ordering veal, ( they knew I would cringe at that) while we were out for dinner. Now they ask for recipes and advice. Poetic justice.
A great read, with lots of good ideas.

Brown basmati may be better nutritionally, but white basmati is the ultimate olfactory and taste experience. The fragrance is 50% of the enjoyment of basmati. I usually buy a variety grown in Punjab.

End of Copyright? I hightly doubt it. Copyright laws will continue to have an influence on how we operate, and how websites such as this continue to do business.


Here's a hint. Unless a site's membership gets a serious clue on how copyright infringement can criple  any site, that very same membership will be the downfall of that very same site.

Hi:
Can you please expand on your post about copyright, maybe if you can keep it simple compare to copyleft. This would be a good post to have.

ps. ever tried wild rice, we fortunately get a variety that is harvested by hand from the Lakeshores. The aboriginal folks harvest from a canoe while beating the rice plants with their paddles it falls in the canoe. Enough falls outside the canoe to make next years crop.

Just 550 years ago this year, a guy named Johann Gutenberg figured out how to make large quantities of metal type in a hurry. He didn’t invent printing—the Chinese had been doing that with wooden blocks for centuries—but he did find a way to make it fast and efficient. Gutenberg changed the world and helped to bring on the Renaissance.

Incidentally, an alphabet is better suited for that task than a logographic system like Chinese. Only a few dozen characters (rather than a few thousand) characters to render, and much easier to manage as a result.

Well, meat simulations are better than ever. Sometimes I want genuine beef jerky though.

Hindi words always sound like italian for me, like this:

- Hey bambini! Have you seen Sergio Basmati today?

 ;D

PS: I like the true cows too. sorry met, I cant live without them, but I try to eat not very much, if that helps  ;)

Consider that Hindi is essentially a vulgar melting-pot language common to an area whose formal languages are Sanskrit and Pali. Latin and Greek share much in common with Sanskrit, and Italian is just lazy Latin, so there's your connection. Try checking a Hindi dictionary and you'll be amazed to see all the cognates.

But they call Telugu the 'Italian of teh East' because of its (superficial) phonetic resemblance to the same.

Indeed, Italian build words from some cases and declinations from latin. Is very interesting. In Spanish just the verbs keeps the desinense structure.
