Book launch event 16 March 13:00 Ghent Kill Copyright, Create Jobs The copyright industry’s lobby has — again — claimed that unless strong measures are taken to enforce copyright, jobs will be lost across Europe. This claim is false, deceptive and misleading, as it only focuses on copyright-dependent sectors while ignoring the copyright-inhibited sectors. It turns out the latter account for ten times more of the economy. Executive summary: for every job lost (or killed) in the copyright industry due to nonenforcement of copyright, 11.8 jobs are created in electronics wholesale, electronics manufacturing, IT, or telecom industries — or even the copyright-inhibited part of the creative industries. A lot of people have pointed out the laughability of the copyright industry’s claim that 1.2 million jobs will be lost until 2015 if not harsh measures are taken to enforce copyright. Unfortunately, perfectly comparable numbers of the economics here are scarce if they exist at all. First, a breakdown of the “creative industries”. Advertising and Marketing, 11%.

April and Jerry Mingalaba — G’day — Saluti — Bun Di — Greetings! It seems that each year, when we sit down to write our annual missive, we think “goodness, how could next year possibly top this year?” And then somehow it does. 2013 was definitely among the most notable examples of this. Because of the number and diversity of neat experiences, we’re not able to go into as much detail about each — unless we want to finish in 2020 — but hopefully still a fun read. TL;DR version: Got married — finally, yaaaaay! This also was a year in which we adopted the sharing economy (or collaborative economy — more on the distinction below) in full force as a lifestyle. Backing up to January 2013, which feels like a decade ago… we were blessed to be invited to the World Economic Forum’s annual summit in Davos. From Davos we headed through stunning Alpine scenery for a brief getaway with one of April’s dearest friends, Mirna, in the village of Walchwil (near Zug). From our trek, it was time to head home.
