Piracy is Progressive Taxation, and Other Thoughts on the Evolution of Online Distribution:  Good points by O'Reilly:

  • Obscurity is a far greater threat to authors and creative artists than piracy.
  • Piracy is progressive taxation
  • Customers want to do the right thing, if they can.
  • Shoplifting is a bigger threat than piracy.
  • File sharing networks don't threaten book, music, or film publishing. They threaten existing publishers.
  • "Free" is eventually replaced by a higher-quality paid service
  • There's more than one way to do it.

World Corps: "A Global Training Institute for a New Generation of Entrepreneurs in Developing Countries:  World Corps is an international non-governmental organization (NGO) with headquarters in Seattle, Washington, USA, and training sites in India, Kenya, Mexico, and the Philippines..  Trainees participate in intensive programs in the following areas:
  • Small business management
  • Community development
  • Internet/communications services
  • Renewable energy products for rural development; and
  • Diversity and global cooperation."

Seems very small and just starting, but interesting in training both for renewables and internet apps, in four important developing countries.
