  • Commented on Why Content Is a Public Good
    @alys: You know what? I hadn't even heard of the Metallica apology. Clearly it wasn't as public as their previous outpourings on the subject. If you're a public figure (which they have been for - what - 30 years now?)...

    @Braden: Thanks for pointing me at that, I hadn't seen it before....
  • Commented on Why Content Is a Public Good
    @dfjdejulio: Both good points - the market does have a way to translate information about people's preferences into financial incentives. However, the one thing I have an issue with is your use of the word "fair" in relation to markets....

    @heteromeles: Lots of interesting thoughts there. The topic of science funding is very dear to my heart as my partner is a nuclear physicist (nuclear physics funding in the UK at the moment is less than Winter Olympics funding, which...

  • Posted Adventures with formatting to Charlie's Diary Test Bed
    Right. Let's try from formatting. Can I do HTML markup or do I need to use the buttons here? Also, how do I do paragraphs? Rival: (Wikipedia seems to call this "rivalrous", but when I were a young economist lass we used to call it rival so I'll stick with that.) A good is rival if my consumption of it diminishes the amount of the good that you can consume. Say we had 10 apples, and I ate one. There would now be 9 apples left which you could eat. If we had one apple and I ate all of...
