"In the past, SABAM has sought to require Internet and hosting service providers to install filters that would prevent the illegal downloading of files. They lost that battle. Then, they wanted social networking companies to install monitoring, filtering or blocking systems to prevent illegal trading of digital music and other copyrighted material. They lost that battle. [...] This morning, word got out in Belgian media that SABAM is spending time and resources to contact local libraries across the nation, warning them that they will start charging fees because the libraries engage volunteers to read books to kids."

"A town has emptied its library in a bid to fight plans to close it down. People in Stony Stratford, near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, have spent the week withdrawing their maximum allowance of books in protest against council plans to close it as part of budget cuts."

The problems of apparently-public activities (shopping, library-going) on private land: "For five large men in black bomber jackets and suits had by now turned up and were angrily insisting that the two women they’d cornered by a lamppost leave at once. Catching sight of me interviewing said assistant librarian one of them marched towards me, demanded I stop recording the interview and actually rested his hands menacingly on my chest as he purposefully leaned forward into my face to tell me that if I didn’t leave right away the next step would be to call the police."

"Protovis is a very powerful visualization toolkit. Part of what makes it special is that it is written in JavaScript and runs in the browser without the need for any plugins. Its clever use of JavaScript's language features makes it very elegant, but it can also be confusing to people who are not familiar with functional programming concepts and the finer points of JavaScript. This multi-part tutorial shows how to create a visualization (my interactive Presidents Chart) in Protovis, and explains the concepts that are involved along the way."

"Welcome to Recurrance. This is a simple set of java classes that will interpret an RFC 2445 RRULE and give you the dates that the occurance would occur. The interface for building these recurrances is copied from the RFC and re-printed below."

"So, what is holding JavaScript back from world domination?

* JavaScript has no module system. To compose JavaScript scripts, they must be either managed in HTML, concatenated, injected, or manually fetched and evaluated. There is no native facility for scope isolation or dependency management.
* JavaScript has no standard library. It has a browser API, dates, and math, but no file system API, much less an IO stream API or primordial types for binary data.
* JavaScript has no standard interfaces for things like Web servers or databases.
* JavaScript has no package management system that manages dependencies and automatically installs them, except JSAN (not to be confused with JSON), which falls short for scope isolation." ...and a solution in CommonJS
