In case you haven't heard, your MacGyver Moments are those times when you improvised an excellent solution to a problem using non-traditional materials, techniques, or tools - like the time I repaired my flux capacitor using bailing wire, chewing gum, the tears of Glenn Beck, and the sweat of a master ninja. Necessity is the Mutha of Invention Believe it or not, I've got a long history of doing things MacGyver style.  To begin with, I grew up without two nickels to rub together.  That means you have to improvise - a lot. Once I hit teenage years, I was constantly tinkering with all … [Read more...]

Innovation and Invention: Whose Method Is Best?

There are a lot of reasons why I love The Economist magazine and pay over $100 per year for a subscription.  First of all, it summarizes all of its news articles, big and small, in the first 4-5 pages of the magazine.  Don't have time to read the entire issue?  No problem, how does 20 minutes work for you?  Second, it reports news from around the world as if the rest of the world actually matters, whereas every American news magazine I read looks at the rest of the world as an afterthought.  You probably know me well enough to know that I travel internationally at least a couple times each … [Read more...]

In Paul's initial post, I saw that he'd asked for three events that were pivotal in why I'm where I am today.  To be honest, I've been noodling over my response ever since Paul first tagged me.  So, in a sense, I've been … [Read more...]

[OT] When Does Media Content -Truly- Become Public Domain?

Allegra going generic


I've always been intrigued by our process for allowing creative content, such as songs or movies, to become public domain. A common usage for public domain might be to create a short family video and, seeking a peppy and familiar piece of background music, you settle on "The Entertainer", by Scott Joplin. (If you've never heard of it, listen here. You'll recognize it.)  Since the music is past the 75 year limit of copyright protection, it is now public domain - meaning that you don't have to pay or seek permission to use it for your family home video. Now, it seems that many old media … [Read more...]
