Where is the world going today?

Posted on Fri 09 May 2003 in general

Its been an interesting week this week. The fog of war seems to of
been well lifted from the news now although of course the battle for
getting Iraq functioning has only just started (I recommend
reading this blog).There have also seemed to be some interesting stories on Intellectual
Property (one of my areas of political interest). href=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/3007087.stm>This story
refers to the patenting of Genes (which I would call a discovery
rather than invention). Hopefully if enough fuss is kicked up about
things like this we will get a broader debate IP law and is doing
enough to promote invention and reward ideas or is it a tool for large
corporations and lawyers to protect what they have and not help the href=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/2795555.stm>little guy?

I also noted my favorite radio station won a load of Sony awards yesterday :-)
