Posted by grmc on October 21, 2006

Let’s talk – let’s analyze and move forward with some decisions.

Would be nice to read the news from Belgium – beautiful country – wherever I will be in the world, without going to 3 – 4 sites or more. Can you imagine if every country will introduce the same laws ?!! No more aggregators to make our life easier, instead let’s complicateĀ it as much as we can.

PLEASE, Let us enjoy the medium.

Web 2.0 as a metaphor for ‘rip-off’ | The News is NowPublic.com

Maybe Google’s spat with the Europeans can serve as a useful starting point for clarifying the discussion of copyright protection in the new cyberage. Lots of issues need to get sorted out. But the longer we keep putting off this discussion, the more we delude ourselves into believing there should be free lunches for some but not others.That’s not amoral. It’s immoral.

China

Posted by grmc on October 3, 2006

We are fascinated by the development in this country.

We analyze, discuss and forecast, butĀ  we always forgot the basics – just human beings with all the good and bad of any other society.

It’s very interesting to watch because there is the unique blend of free market and communism.
