- Lord Justice Sedley has made the extraordinary statement that he believes that all of the UK’s DNA (and the DNA of anyone who visits the company) should be permanently on file This really is quite extraordinary. With such a limited sense of how such information could be used and abused in the future making a call seems completely indefensible, particularly in the name of fairness…
- Kevin Marks talks about Andrew Keen and ‘slumming’ I find the idea of the net as corrupting as fascinating, given that my experience of the net has been of a culture that has been corrupted by business, media, public relations, self-important careerist journalists and the like…
- CollegeHumor.com shows what a meeting would be like if everyone who worked at the company acted like they might in comments threads on blogs… It’s all ‘first’, tit jokes and “ura ‘tard”. Funny, scary and depressing in roughly equal measure.
- Corporations are apparently not getting a lot of value from being in Second Life… This is not an enormous surprise, even if I think they’re missing out on some of the softer benefits. In the end, it’s press that they’re really going for. And a hint of future-looking zeitgeist-catching flare. That’s all.
