    C'mon people!

    As I read through these comments I am absolutely staggered -- and depressed -- by the hostility to the notion of protecting ideas for a time.

    Here's my question: do you think that there would have been such an explosion of knowledge in the world if ideas had not been protected these last several hundred years?

    Nick Carr is concerned about one thing: that his readers value the quality of his writing. Why else would he use florid prose such as "truth is self created though labor"? What the hell does that even mean, anyway? I can self create the truth that rocks fall by picking one up and dropping it. Is that labor? Maybe in Lazy Nick's world.
