Dean Baker: The Simple Economics of Trade

"The worst part of the story is that the winners are too dumb or too dishonest to acknowledge that they won because they had the government on their side, so they go around gloating about having what it takes to succeed in the global economy."

Raph’s Website CopyBot Raph Koster on the copy crisis in Second Life.

"They will be copied. They will be ripped off. They will find their market prices falling. They will agitate for DRM. They will form lobbies with the analogue to a government, and argue that they are in fact the primary cultural contributors in the system. They will, in the end, come to embody everything about the broader, commercial Web that they fled to Second Life in order to escape.

"They will, in effect, be hoist by their own petard."

NPR : Ride a Bike, Ruin the Environment, a rather swiftian argument against bikes, but without all the humor. Breaks down as such: you ride a bike and therefore live longer and since you live longer you end up messing up the world more, yeah that really is the argument...
