Good news for original creators:
Always ask for stock! Feb 2, 12, 1:02 p.m.
Quite a turn of events for graf artist David Choe:
SAN FRANCISCO — The graffiti artist who took Facebook stock instead of cash for painting the walls of the social network’s first headquarters made a smart bet. The shares owned by the artist, David Choe, are expected to be worth upward of $200 million when Facebook stock trades publicly later this year.

Art 4 Tibet 3 :: NYC + online Oct 13, 11, 12:51 p.m.

Free Ride:Digital Parasites Aug 18, 11, 11:29 a.m.
Looking forward to this book written by a former editor at Wired:
Free Ride: How Digital Parasites are Destroying the Culture Business, and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back
“The most convincing defense of the current predicament of the creative industries that I have read.”
—James Crabtree, Financial Times
“Can the culture business survive the digital age? That’s the burning question Robert Levine poses in his provocative new book. And his answer is one that will get your blood boiling. Rich with revealing stories and telling tales, Free Ride makes a lucid case that information is actually expensive – and that it’s only the big technology firms profiting most from the work of others that demand information be free.”
—Gary Rivlin, author of Broke, USA
“One of the great issues of the digital age is how people who create content will be able to make a living. Robert Levine’s timely and well-researched book provides a valuable look at how copyright protection was lost on the internet and offers suggestions about how it could be restored.”
—Walter Isaacson, President/CEO of the Aspen Institute and author of Benjamin Franklin
“This book thoroughly documents a wide-spread outbreak of cyber amnesia. Despite libertarian delusions, industries often get Free Rides, especially in their early days, but they eventually give back. Taxpayers build roads, then get hired to build cars. The Internet gives back a lot in exchange for its Free Ride, but one thing it defiantly isn’t giving back is a way for enough people to make a living. No matter how amusing or addictive the Internet becomes, its foundation will crumble unless it starts returning the favors it was given and still depends on.”
—Jaron Lanier, author of You Are Not a Gadget
“Free Ride is a brilliantly written book that exposes the dark side of the Internet. A must read for anyone interested in the horrific undermining of our intellectual culture.”
—Edward Jay Epstein, author of The Big Picture: Money and Power in Hollywood
“Robert Levine deftly dissects the self-serving Orwellian freedom-speak being served up by Silicon Valley’s digital new lords as they amass fortunes devaluing the work of artists, journalists and other old-fashioned ‘content creators.’ Free Ride begs us to remove our blinders and take a hard look down a cultural dead-end road.”
—Fred Goodman, author of Fortune’s Fool: Edgar Bronfman Jr., Warner Music, and an Industry in Crisis

Some of you know BoingBoing.net as a blog that gets mad respect for being on the cusp of tech, culture, science, steampunk art, etc.
Some of you know BoingBoing co-founder Cory Doctorow's ardent stance on copyright issues, especially concerning the web.
Cory just posted re: the Daily Mail jacking his wife's photo. Great read:

Anyone going to this? What's the word?
image sizing + sharpening Mar 1, 10, 9:35 a.m.
Wondering if anyone has advanced sharpening tools/plugins/techniques/tips they prefer over the standard unsharp mask or "bicubic sharpening" setting when sizing images down.
My big discovery is that if I size down in 50% increments, it yields a better result than otherwise. Anyone else? Whatcha got?
