This is a feature cast.
There is no hacker word of the week this week due to the length of the feature.
The feature this week is a recording of the copyright panel I moderated at Farpoint this past weekend. Please bear with the audio quality as I used the unpowered mic that came with my record. I was joined in the discussion by Helen Madden (who mentions Epicon and ERWA), Paul Fischer and Martha Holloway of the Balticon Podcast and the ADDCast, Jared Axelrod of too many creative projects to name but notably the creator of my podcast’s cover art, J.R. Blackwell, an amazing photographer and writer as well, and aspiring writer Paulette Jaxton who also recently started the Form Letter Rejection Theater podcast.
The book I mention is “The Pirate’s Dilemma” and it was in the context of Gail Z. Martins forthcoming interview with me. I also mentioned the 75/22/3 rule, explored by PhD economics candidate David Blackburn. Doctorow’s Law, that I cited but never explained was coined by Andrew Savikas in his coverage of the Tools of Change conference: “If someone takes something that belongs to you, and puts a lock on it that you don’t have a key for, that lock isn’t in your best interests”. I also mentioned Bookworm which was covered at ToC. Paulette mentioned that she uses Fictionwise which may support ePub but I couldn’t find any clear and easier reference for such support.
