Fri, 09 Jul 2010 20:19:49 +0000If you like funk, rock, progressive, humor, or talented musicians putting their all out on the table for you then get this album. If you have never listened to Geo's music before prepare to be perplexed. On my first listen I loved a few songs, hated a few, and wasn't sure what several were talking about. At first listen this is a very good album. If you have followed Geo, listen to the Geologic Podcast, listen to any science or skepticism podcasts, have ever considered the fairness/unfairness of the universe, like bizarre animals, enjoy sick drums or basslines, sing along, think current pop music is bland, or are a generally scientific or skeptical person you will find many "easter eggs" that push Geo's work over the top! Remember 49% of humans are of below average intelligence, listening to George Hrab is guaranteed to improve your mind by at least 5% (references to follow).

Wed, 21 May 2008 03:17:32 +0000As I have revisited this today, in thinking about upcoming Balticon 42, there were a couple of clarifications I want to make to the interview. (I'll blame it on it being the last day of an exhausting con at the time of recording ;) ): 1. I completely left out talking about the whole alcohol hand-gel concept - as opposed to anti-bacterial soap, those do work, and kill via direct toxic effect on bacteria and viruses... much in the same way that bleach does. Speaking of which: 2. There are several varieties of bacteria that are resistant to bleach's killing effects. Fortunately, none of them have caused any significant disease in humans as of yet. Here, I mean "bleach" as in some strong dilution of a pure bleach solution. There are bacteria in hospitals that do cause human disease that have developed the ability to subsist, and thrive, in various cleaning solutions, but these are not typically composed of pure bleach. See you in a few days!

Sat, 25 Aug 2007 05:42:53 +0000Thanks Paul. I've heard plenty of chit chat with JCH and almost skipped this episode -- i'm gald i didn't. I dug what you had to say about the fan "box."
Sat, 18 Aug 2007 20:44:20 +0000Thanks for investigating this. It seems that the dangers may be exaggerated, but that publishers are unwilling to be called to defend their authors in the event of a claim (naturally so). The FAQ at Chilling Effects is indeed useful but was presumably written before the development of Creative Commons. FanFic would appear to be the ideal application for Creative Commons licensing, though publishers are hardly likely to take CC on board given their leary attitude to anything that might necessitate a lawsuit, especially as CC hasn't been sufficiently tested in court.

Wed, 15 Aug 2007 15:17:27 +0000FROM: Carry The Lawyer Paul: As I guessed, there are a few resources on the subject. The one I recommend is the FAQ by www.chillingeffects.org. It's a great little primer, outlines much of what we talked about last night (but doesn't include the Gone with the Wind ref I discussed), and includes a little more on the trademark angle. http://www.chillingeffects.org/fanfic/faq.cgi A thing I wanted to mention: Slavish copying was a bit of a misstatement -- its better to say, copying of a character that is uniquely original to the story ( e.g., Spock from Star Trek, Harry Potter). Note: There is no protection for "stock" characters (the gay best friend, or the girl next door), even if you slavishly copy them. These are the characters I discussed as 'archetypes.'
Wed, 15 Aug 2007 14:24:29 +0000I spoke to Carry last night. She's an IP/Copyright lawyer. Basically, She says that PaulJ is correct. That ideas can't be copyrighted and that an author would have to slavishly copy a work in order to be open to a successful law suit. However, anyone can sue for anything, and that might be the crux of the matter. I've been thinking about this a lot and really wondering about the source of the information. I have two theories on this: 1) Lawyers at various publishing firms have been telling authors that reading fan fic about their work, and interacting with fans could possibly open them up to law suits. While this is true, it is not likely. It is even less likely that the law suits would be successful. But if they occur, they would still be a loss of time, energy, and money for the author and the publisher. 2) There is dogma in the industry that is passed between the various employees of publishing houses, agents, and authors. The idea that something could happen to an author if they interact with fans or fan fic authors permeates the culture. And although there is very little likelihood of it happening, maybe even less than getting hit by a bus while crossing the street, the authors are convinced by the dogma that they should not step off this curb. I liken number 2 to
