Computer Stupidities: The World Wide Web - StumbleUpon One time, I caught my Mom working at the computer, printing out information for my brother's report. She was reading an article at Wikipedia, and she didn't know that if you edit Wikipedia, it stays there for the entire world to look at. So she was editing most of the links, pictures, and headings out -- and even put a little more at the top: "Here is the info, sweetie, good luck!" She almost pressed 'Save' when I went over and asked her what she was doing. I used to do tech support for a company that made computer accessories and video game accessories.

Ready-Made Public Domain Products Via the Freedom of Information Act First, the general disclaimer: I’m not a lawyer and can’t offer legal advice. Second, if you plan on creating Public Domain products, you must have this on your bookshelf: “The Public Domain: How to Find & Use Copyright-free Writings, Music, Art & More.“ An interesting source of public domain info is the FBI’s Electronic Reading Room via the Freedom of Information Act. There, you’ll find dozens and dozens of declassified files ranging from famous persons to espionage to unusual phenomenon in the form of conveniently packaged PDFs. Since these reports were declassified and paid for US tax payer dollars, they are part of the public domain and you can bundle or package them as you wish and sell as your own products.

Mind you, some of these PDFs are extremely hard on the eyes as well as appearing convoluted due to cross outs, fading, signatures and stamps.

I'm Dick Sutphen and this tape is a studio-recorded, expanded version of a talk I delivered at the World Congress of Professional Hypnotists Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although I've been interviewed about the subject on many local and regional radio and TV talk shows, large-scale mass communication appears to be blocked, since it could result in suspicion or investigation of the very media presenting it or the sponsors that support the media. Everything I will relate only exposes the surface of the problem. In talking about this subject, I am talking about my own business. Charles J. Alright.
