Digital technology opens up an unprecedented global economy of ideas. RiP explores the robber barons and revolutionaries squaring off across this new frontier as the film journeys from the control rooms of Washington to the favelas of Brazil. Along the way, Gaylor interviews key figures about the complexities of intellectual property in the digital era, among them Creative Commons founder Lawrence Lessig, culture critic Cory Doctorow, Brazilian musician and former Minister of Cultural Affairs Gilberto Gil, and Jammie Thomas, the single mom successfully sued by the Recording Industry Association of America for illegal downloading.
A mash-up in itself, RiP is the world’s first Open Source documentary, shattering the wall between users and producers, and challenging the thresholds of “fair use.” A participatory media experiment, from day one, Brett shares his raw footage at , for anyone to remix. RiP’s movie-as-mash-up method allowed these remixes to become an integral part of the film.
He who receives an idea from me receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine receives light without darkening me.

Robert Niles at Online Journalism Review has a practical guide to linking on the web, where he observes:
“Ultimately, the addition of useful hyperlinking within an online news story reflects the strong reporting of its author. If a reporter does not know of online pages with extra information relating to the story, he or she cannot link to them. But if you have that information, why not share it with those readers who are eager for it?”
Again, I would take this a step further — links aren’t just a fundamental element of the reporting.
Links can BE the reporting.

Hi there to all!
I listed ED2K links for all books of Paulo Coelho that I found on the net.
There is nothing wrong with that, if you can catch what I mean. I just googled his books and show you here what you can find about him.
Plus, he likes what I’m doing. If you don’t believe me, just check yourself. —> Look at his free download page with my old link!
Is the journey more important than the destination?
To have a destination is important. It’s always advisable to know where you’re heading. For instance, in the Road to Saint James, you need to know where you are. It’s through this knowledge that you can organize your trip, but it’s the journey that you really enjoy. Once in Santiago, you’re tired and you have finished your travel. It’s at this precise moment that you realize that the destination is your passion and the path your joy.
That doesn’t mean that i see myself as an art critic, a reporter or a journalist. I can’t think of myself as anything else than a blogger. Not because of the tools i use but as time passes, i realize that what makes me so passionate about the blog is not informing you but rather sharing with you what matters to me. The selection of stories i cover are therefore submitted to my own whim, not to the ambition of covering extensively a given field of art. So, yes, apologies to anyone who finds them so so gross, but there’s still a fair amount of biotech art stories in store. Apologies again to anyone who believes that new media art should be totally separated from contemporary art.
