Who Owns Ideas - Bill C61

The copyright amendment bill (C-61) tabled a few months ago “died on the table” when the 39th Canadian Parliament was dissolved prematurely for the upcoming election. Sadly, I’m sure it will be back in one form or another (especially if the Conservatives win a majority).

In the mean while, I’d encourage you to listen to the CBC Ideas episode entitled Who Owns Ideas. [podcast here]

The Panda vs. Reetbot show on Friday was an inspiration. We picked up some new pieces for our walls. Photos from the show can be found in this flickr stream. Oh, and aggie panda tumbles too.

A mathematician named Klein
Thought the Möbius band was divine.
Said he: “If you glue
The edges of two,
You’ll get a weird bottle like mine.
—anonymous

A Klein bottle is a surface which has no edges, no outside or inside. Unlike a Möbius band band, you cannot properly construct a Klein bottle in three-dimensional Euclidian space.
