Starting December 3, the world’s governments meet behind closed doors to discuss the future of the Internet. This meeting of the International Telecommunication Union or ITU will take place in Dubai. Some governments want to use this meeting in Dubai to increase censorship and regulate the Internet.

A free and open world depends on a free and open Internet. And a #freeandopen Internet depends on you.

Awesome analysis of the Amazon ebook strategy by Charlie Stross (@cstross). Anyone who wants to understand how Amazon is changing the game for publishers should read this post.

I agree with Charlie on every point. He is particularly compelling on the subject of how publishers played right into Amazon's hands by insisting on DRM, and how their only hope is to drop it ASAP. I've been saying this, to deaf ears in New York, for years. Publishers need to focus on interoperable ebook standards above all else. Good for them, good for readers, and good for the industry as a whole.

A copy of the Mona Lisa in Spain appears to have been painted in tandem with the original. Restored, the copy now sheds new light on the original work. Interesting read/view.
