Interesting article via /.: John Dvorak: Creative Commons Humbug. Too late to think/comment about it. Maybe tomorrow.

Don't waste your mental energy.

Dvorak's a troll who, as far as I remember, has already dismissed as worthless : blogging, wikipedia, podcasting, free software and probably anything else worthwhile in computing since the invention of the PC.

I also remember him using his position as editor of Byte (back in 1992) to warn programmers not to vote for Clinton on the grounds that the anti-capitalist Democrats would be bad for the computer industry.

Clinton and his government of course then went on to invent the internet and preside over s/the greatest legal creation of value the world has ever seen/the Internet Bubble/g;
