The Word of Notch

It’s like a short story, but longer, and you’re really proud of it. Trinity then runs up to you and takes one of the few printed copies of your novel. You don’t want her to do that, as you paid good money to have it printed, and was hoping to get that money back, so you taze her. Trinity tried to commit theft. She sulks for a bit, then asks if she can borrow one copy to read it. She sobs for a bit more, then starts writing her own novel. I am fine with the concept of “owning stuff”, so I’m against theft. I am mostly fine with the concept of “selling stuff you made”, so I’m also against copyright infringement. But there is no way in hell you can convince me that it’s beneficial for society to not share ideas. A common argument for patents is that inventors won’t invent unless they can protect their ideas.

I finally feel that I’ve got enough perspective on things to put together some thoughts on what went wrong at Realtime Worlds.

Where Realtime Worlds went wrong

It’s been a tough piece to put together, because the scope of the question is just so big. In the end, I’ve settled for a set of observations that are cultural in nature. With my knowledge of what happened, these are the closest I feel I can get to root causes. It does raise the questions of why we had these cultural problems, and when they crept in. These are pretty hard questions. There are some things I am definitely not going to talk about. Kongregate: Play free games online.

I Am NOT the Beastmaster: Heroin, or, The Economic Logic of Late Capitalism

It's not just the product they're selling, which destroys lives and eats away at neighborhoods; it's the business itself, a shadow industry run by sociopaths who betray their own people when there's a dollar to be made or a risk to be avoided. But it wasn't always like that: The users, an army unto themselves, were serviced daily in back alleys and housing project stairwells by men who were, on some level, careerists, committed to distribution networks that paid them, protected them, paid their bails, and took care of their people when they went away to Hagerstown or Jessup.

These men were professional in outlook, lethal but not reckless, and by and large, they lived with an acknowledged code, to wit: They didn't use what they sold. Homepage. BBC iPlayer.
