I am shocked -- shocked!-- to discover that there is gambling going on... - Captain Renault

The recent paper, Experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks has raised a storm of controversy. Some comments have been interesting, others misinformed or misguided, at least in my view. But what struck me most strongly about at least one part of the reaction is its congruence with other discussion, such some of that around Google Glass, in that some people seem to object to being informed that something is happening.

Over at ComputerWorldUK, Glyn Moody argues that Fair, Reasonable And Non-Discriminatory...Ain't. This is an instance of a somewhat common theme among, supporters of the GPL, in essence, that it is somehow 'unfair' for software to be licenced in a way that is incompatible with the GPL.

I submit that is is not just incorrect, but indeed the very opposite of correct.

Like many people working with computers, I've been paying a small amount of attention to the release of the new Apple 'iPad'. Though I don't work much in the Apple ecosystem these days, I still have a certain "nostalgia" for Apple and Mac, given that my very first computer was a Mac+. Unfortunately, after reading around a bit, I am forced to the concludion that the 'iPad' is likely to be a 'miss', rather than a 'hit'.

I know very few of the details about the affair regarding Chief Judge Kozinski and the web pages, but I have to agree with Robert Cooper at Screming Penguin that "Lessig is just wrong..." in his comments On privacy in the cyberage.
