Harvard Business Review Press is going DRM-free! I’m not exactly their market, but I respect what they’re doing.

A leader in Germany’s Pirate Party wants the government to crack down on illegal copies of her book (or the publisher does, anyway).

From BoingBoing, a look at Victorian and Edwardian proto-science-fiction. I’ve got The Time Machine on my audiobook queue.

The Washington Post is identifying a trend that I suspect is not much of a trend: employers telling employees to avoid after-hours email. This has never really been a problem for me. The article refers to extra productivity reaped by employers after-hours as people have gotten company-issued cell phones, but doesn’t talk about what I suspect is at least a slight drop-off in productivity during work hours.

Salon’s Laura Amann has an interesting piece on increasing political polarization and its effect on her marriage.

I should have put this in my recent post about lawyers in ruralia, but hadn’t run across it yet.

    Sometime ago, if memory serves, there was a item here (possibly by Sheila) about how adoptions of troubled adolescents often do not work out well. This horrible story from Connecticut is an admittedly extreme case in point.

    re: Salon piece

    That was really embarrassing to read. Arguing about politics with your spouse to the point of dysfunction, what a pathetic child-like state. Awkward, more-revelatory-than-you-realize unselfawareness is awkward!

    For what it’s worth, my e-mail to Doonesbury’s “Blowback” was put up. It’s under, “The Way to Go.”

    re: Salon piece

    Agree with AC. The fact that the author was so self-righteous about her side didn’t help matters either.

    That’s awesome, Kirk! I wish I could comment further, but I don’t really understand the context.

    AC and Abel,

    Politics complicated marriage actually makes some sense to me. Particularly to the extent that we associate our ideology with values which is as true as it ever was if not more. Or perhaps it has less to do with our values and more to do with the extent to which we associate our ideology with our identity.

    Wow, that’s a depressing story, Peter.
