On intellectual property

Loyal reader, I realize that you view this weblog with great care and scrutiny.

Thus, I have no doubt that you have already noticed a new word sprinkled around all my websites.

For my other more casual readers, I have added a new disclaimer about my website(s) that I urge everyone to read about the intellectual property that I create here and elsewhere on the world wide web.

I woke up this morning and began working on my resume. About zero words into a blank word document, I had an epiphany.  It started while thinking about the consumable content and programs that I have been creating lately. I typed it up pretty quickly as a stream of consciousness (which I typically do), so please send me a note it does not make any sense.

To sum up, I think ideas are like rivers... and copyrighting is like the river bed charging a tax on the water molecules for flowing over it. Its unreasonable and counter productive.

This post inspired by Uruguayan President Jose Mujica.
