There you are, hunched over the keyboard, and the thought pops into your head. You've never gone on a web search for Saint Etienne. Less than an hour later, you're downloading obscure Japanese releases and scouring websites for information on fan-club only albums. You've found live sessions, discovered that the US version of Tiger Bay is completely different from the original UK one,
and been surprised to find out that Sarah Cracknell doesn't sing on Only Love Can Break Your Heart.
It's a sickness. And there's no cure.
By chance, I read the UNC newsgroups today. Which was good, because they were promoting a Creative Commons talk in Wilson Library that was going to take place this afternoon. I had read about most of the things discussed at the lecture, but it was nice to actually meet somebody behind the effort. The new idea of bringing back the Founders' Copyright seems interesting, and it's great to see that O'Reilly is backing the effort.
