Great discussion around IP law and the creative industries on this weeks guardian tech weekly podcast.

Does Feargal Sharkey give away a little about the Apple Cloud music service?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/blog/audio/2011/nov/01/tech-weekly-intellectual-property-copyright-audio

As usual I have some issues with Feargal Sharkey's position... He seems to say that innovation needs to start from a blank sheet of paper. I doubt that anything created in the last thousand years has started from a truly blank sheet of paper. We build on what has gone before.

Show me a successful song written by someone with no musical influences using instruments they have made and learnt to play themselves and I will eat my hat.

Innovation is about taking what is known and doing it better. We stand on the shoulders of giants. Good artists copy, great artists steal. These phrases need to be at the heart of IP law.

The changing coloured lights down the side of the building are pretty cool. I tend to refer to the building as the MCP tower due to it looking like something straight out of Tron...

Well thought out whitepaper. This coincides with my thoughts about UEFI: just giving us a switch to disable secure boot is not enough. Let us install our own keys so that we can take advantage of the security no matter what OS we choose to install.

As white papers go, this one's short and easy to read. Going forward into the Secure Boot PC world, I recommend you read it if you ever intend to run Linux on your PC. If you don't, well, it's probably not going to matter unless the principle of Microsoft deciding what OS you can or can't install bothers you.

That is part of the worry. The only way to support old OSs is to allow a simple "Disable Secure Boot" toggle. This would fix the issue around installing Linux too, and I think that most manufacturers will not have a problem making this setting available.

I think this would only be part of the right solution though.

Will be interesting to see if M$ enforce this in the opposite direction... If Win8 requires secure boot it could verify that it likes the signature of the hardware it is running on. Could probably even be used to prevent virtualisation...

As someone who has struggled with depression since my teenage years I can definitely relate to this.

I also recommend reading the archive. I have cried tears of laughter while reading H+1/2 many times in the past.

Depression

This blog post really captures the feelings of helplessness caused by depression. Judging by the volume of "me too" comments, lots of people can relate.

I was talking to a friend about depression a few weeks ago, and she talked about her own experience which started when she was living in Serbia during the war. She spent the night time watching bombs falling near her house. The thing is, in that situation, depression can be rationalised as a reasonable reaction to the environment.

However, when depression isn't caused by anything environmental I think it's much harder for the general public (and the victims themselves) to understand. A common reaction is: "You have nothing to be miserable about - case dismissed."

I am going to take the plunge and migrate my activity to my apps account (+Russell Heilling ), even though the migration tool isn't available yet. I have been having a lot of trouble with random logouts while using the multiple account feature of Google. It is getting painful. Much better to just use the one account.

Hopefully I will be able to migrate content across at some point...

Q2 2012 for ICS on the SGSII... And it's all down to Touchwiz.

I guess I'll be shifting to cyanogen when there's a stable ICS based build...

Shame this is unlikely to make it to my Galaxy S, but all will be forgiven if I can retro fit it to my asus transformer MKI...

I think the length of the sentence sickens me as much as the crime. If this guy was just in posession of the images, then 12 months is perhaps reasonable, as long as it is backed up with a lot of psychological help. But this guy was uploading images and he only gets 12 months?
