Obama Photog Says "You're Both Wrong" To AP & Fairey

jdwilso2 Re:I'm having a hard time seeing infringement (222 comments)

I think it's even more simple than that ... everyone's greedy and copyright law is completely broken.

the IP industry wants it both ways and only when it supports larger corporations rather than individuals ...

contrast this with the recent wikipedia issue of the UKs national portrait gallery claiming copyright on photos taken of portraits that are in the public domain

http://yro.slashdot.org/story/09/07/11/1239244/UKs-National-Portrait-Gallery-Threatens-To-Sue-Wikipedia-User

the real issue is that copyright law protects the entity with the largest legal budget.

More "Miles Per Acre" From Bioelectricity Than Ethanol

jdwilso2 What about hemp? (223 comments)

okay, so i didn't read it yet, but i'll jump the gun and assume that they haven't considered making ethanol from hemp (cannabis). fuel per unit area of farm land goes way up from both corn and sugar cane and could really help put alternative fuels on the map.

but we can't do that cause of the children (or something)

Is Alcohol Killing Our Planet?

jdwilso2 CO2 isn't always used in kegs ... (468 comments)

Some kegs use nitrogen which creates much smaller bubbles and a thicker richer (tastier) head. Other kegs use a mix of N2 and CO2 (with lots more N2 than CO2 in many cases).

I'm actually not a fan of beers that just use CO2 in their kegs as they can taste very sharp and are harder to drink IMO.
