share share share.

It must be meme season right now...every other blog I read has one or is sending one....maybe that's what fall really is about? Or is it pre-holiday giving?

Who knows.

Some are kind of cool though.

I was just reading on the always interesting Will Richardson's site
Weblogg-ed a reference to an article about "Sharism".

This harkens back to my sentiments about copyright and copyright infringment...and where the lines are drawn.

The source article that Richardson leapt off from is also very very interesting....you can find it here . The writer, Issac Mao, branches off into larger global political systems which may not be for everyone, but which I found relevant.

I also find it interesting that the article is being written about the power of sharing withing many contexts - social, economic, intellectual etc etc etc - and he is a Chinese venture capitalist living in China. The historical context for this piece adds to the fascination for me.

You might want to check it out. More later most likely.

Health status for those who care....
Youngest? Improving slowly. No school today or basketball, but better
Me? Improving steadily, but quavering given the next bit of news.
Eldest? Possibly going down...has had a headache for most of the day and two of the kids on her field trip threw up.

I am SUCH a sh*tty nurse.

Breathe deeply.

Hope you all feel better soon! Feeling poorly is NO Fun, neither is nursing sick kids.

kate said...

Yes, hope you are all on the mend. We've been hit over here, especially the baby, who is up every hour with a stuffy nose. Get well!

As for copyright, you might be interested in this blog, not a lot of posts but on that subject: http://parsingfairuse.blogspot.com/

Adding the Sharism article to my TBR list...

Carla, the kids seem to be fine...thank goodness. I am better by and large...sort of gross, but not debilitating.

Kate, babies with colds are TOTALLY miserable. Poor things. Their noses are just too small for the job. I will check that site out. Thanks.

Diane...and I am indeed glad for you!

Beth, my mom always used to give me ginger ale too. Love that stuff. Now to find diet coke with lime.
