I have been a big fan of “This Week in Tech(This Week in Tech)”:http://www.twit.tv/ since the very beginning. Having never had the opportunity of seeing Tech TV back in the heyday, I have enjoyed it immensely. “This week’s episode(TWiT 64: Chaos Theory)”:http://www.twit.tv/64 was interesting for another reason: for the first time ever, I had met three of the partcipants, Chris Pirillo, Doug Kaye, and Jerry Pournelle. At one point, Leo Laporte suggested having Jerry and Cory Doctorow on as guests to dicuss their differing views on Copyright. The odd thing, even though I have never written about it, I once witnessed that very debate. Jerry and Cory were both guests at the first (and unfortunately last) “Dreamcon(Off to Dreamcon)”:http://www.libraryplanet.com/2004/06/11/dreamcon. And during one of Cory’s presentations, Jerry came in and sat on the front row. Unfortunately, though, Jerry came was arguing a whole lot of points that were largely based on the past. One I specifically remeber was the idea of increasing demand for a work by deliberately allowing it to go out of print. Cory didn’t really argue the point but it was rather obvious to me that in the days of Amazon and WorldCat there just isn’t such thing as the unobtainable book (at least for an author as widely published as Jerry). You can always find some place to get a copy somewhere. Jerry didn’t seem too thrilled by the idea when Leo brought it up. But personally, I would love to have a chance to see what would be a rematch for me.
