Event on Saturday to get DRM out of the Boston Public Library [Feb. 7th, 2008|11:04 am]
The Boston Community



DefectiveByDesign.org has announced an action against libraries that support DRM on their collections. Boston locals can join them this Saturday from 1pm to 3pm at the Boston Public Library's main branch, and non-locals are encouraged to stage an action against their own library if it's using DRM.

Re: excuse the cross-posting...

you're the person who fixes Safari Tech Books Online when it breaks. I love you for that. Having access to those books without having to go to the library whenever I forget Perl (once or twice a week) is wonderful.

Re: excuse the cross-posting...

Indeed, that is me. I'm not sure whether to be flattered at the appreciation or embarrassed that Safari has gone down a couple times so far this year. Well, if there's an up side to that, we've really found out that a *lot* of people use Safari ... and we've ironed out those access problems!

Thanks for saying hi!
