Whining about spreadsheets

Interesting: Yahoo! News – Spreadsheets: 25 Years in a Cell. What with Sarbanes-Oxley and all that jazz, I wonder if we are going to see shareholder lawsuits accusing CxOs of using inferior, misleading tools when better alternatives exist.

Judge: File sharing legal in Canada | CNET

More analyis … Judge: File sharing legal in Canada | CNET
… to quote the judge :

“The mere fact of placing a copy on a shared directory in a computer
where that copy can be accessed via a P2P service does not amount to
distribution,” Judge Konrad von Finckenstein wrote.
“Before it constitutes distribution, there must be a positive act by
the owner of the shared directory, such as sending out the copies or
advertising that they are available for copying.”

On another note, apparently that blockquote is illegal in xhtml-transitional. I have no idea why.

Ooops. I am so sorry. You have gone 24 hours longer than necessary without discovering SciDev.Net. To quote them:
“The overall aim of the Science and Development Network (SciDev.Net) is to enhance the provision of reliable and authoritative information on science- and technology-related issues that impact on the economic and social development of developing countries.”
Cool site. Very cool. Well, to me at least. And it’s all about control. In this case controlling who thinks what is cool around here.
