Afraid someone will steal your idea?
"No genius. No mystique. Only work. Don't buy into the genius mystique. It is a mirage. Maybe there are geniuses out there, but you can't go assuming that you're one. That's like living as if you're going to win the lottery on a regular basis. No, the value comes from the work and no one's going to do more of it than you."

Long Live the Web: Tim Berners-Lee Scientific American
TB-L is back with his continuing arguments for an open, net neural web. "Why should you care? Because the Web is yours. It is a public resource on which you, your business, your community and your government depend. The Web is also vital to democracy, a communications channel that makes possible a continuous worldwide conversation. The Web is now more critical to free speech than any other medium. It brings principles established in the U.S. Constitution, the British Magna Carta and other important documents into the network age: freedom from being snooped on, filtered, censored and disconnected."

Never Mind the Edupunks; or, The Great Web 2.0 Swindle
Here's a chord. Here's another. Now go form a band. Brian Lamb and Jim Groom critique open ed, sneaky commodification, Vivienne Westwood, and the coming New Romantics. This is where we are, again. Like old home week. "It may not surprise readers that the two of us—a couple of embittered Gen-X'ers who've been associated with the "edupunk" aesthetic—look at the commodification of online educational environments with distaste. At the risk of indulging our stereotypical knee-jerk anti-corporatism, we note here several concerns."
