Just in case you can’t get enough grokkin’:
- American Libraries’ news brief on the (somewhat disappointing) ALA reaction
- Siva Vaidhyanathan’s article in Salon.com, his sugggestions for background reading and analysis, and an amusing tidbit he dug up
- The Mad Librarian’s initial musings on the ruling
- The Grokster ruling and DRM, from DRMblog.com
- and finally, Seth Finkelstein is always worth reading, despite his feelings on punditry
Finally: I was late (the usual McCormick Place is really far away from everywhere else thing) to “The Googlization of Everything: A Threat to the Information Commons?” and thus only caught the last 10 or 15 minutes of Siva Vaidhyanathan’s presentation, but you can read some coverage from Aaron Dobbs (thanks, ALA Wiki!). Also, if, like me, you arrived late (or if you attended a different event at the Intercontinental and didn’t hear about the boycott), Rory has helpfully provided some coverage of the boycott, including a letter of protest you can download, in the latest Library Juice.
