Libraries vs. File Sharing Sites

Yesterday: 8 miles on the exercise bike, 3-hour Sanchin-Ryu workshop, and then came home to mow the lawn.

Today: Ouch.

One of the arguments that comes up from time to time in discussions of file-sharing is that it’s the same thing libraries are doing.

Today was my day to post at SF Novelists, so I’ve started picking apart the rather poor argument that file-sharing sites are just like libraries: http://www.sfnovelists.com/2010/05/24/libraries-vs-file-sharing-sites/

Go forth and read, and please feel free to chime in with your own thoughts.
