Away from the Troubles of GPLv3

I know everyone thinks that I have given up even the semblance of maintaining a blog, and given what GPLv3 has done to my ability to communicate what I am personally up to in my life, I probably have for the moment. Eventually that massive license negotiation will be complete, and I will only have to cope here with the required discretion necessary for the ordinary practice of law, not also the conduct of industrial diplomacy.

But here’s something we can all take 4 minutes and 31 seconds to appreciate; one of the most lucid pieces of artful public instruction I’ve ever seen. I don’t know of any existing honor appropriate to the merits of this work, but when humanity begins offering the Ted Nelson Prize, I hope Professor Michael Wesch wins one of the early ones.
