  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    As I go into here, one thing that interests me about the Puppies movements and GamerGate is how they both had such similar beginnings and met such similar rejections. Both were launched by splinter groups of their respective fandom, rooted...
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    I’ve been somewhat skeptical about how closely related Puppies and GamerGate have been, simply because I hadn’t seen any evidence that there was a direct connection beyond Vox Day being a GG sympathizer and both sets of groups having similar...
  • Commented on Two Thoughts
    On a related note......
  • Commented on An exercise in futility
    Funny thing is, someone's already thought of that. Or at least they had a while back. I haven't looked to see if anything ever came of it....

  • Commented on An exercise in futility
    Funny thing: a DVD player that does something similar to movies has the distinction of having had its business model specifically authorized by an act of Congress. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_Entertainment_and_Copyright_Act#Family_Home_Movie_Act_of_2005 Since it doesn't alter the original work, just the way in which...
  • Commented on Amazon, Macmillan: an outsider's guide to the fight
    What Macmillan claims to want is the ability to do flexible pricing: $15 when it first comes out, then dropping the price as the book gets older. The thing is, they've had the ability to do this for several years...
