Stuck in the Middle
December 1st, 2008

If the above are among your benchmarks, you might end up disappointed according to a recent flood of books warning us away from The Chase. It’s a clich√© that human nature is to always want more (food, power, etc) — according to zoology and behavioural science it was hardwired into us millions of years ago.

Simulating the Future

Thanks for the Idea
April 1st, 2009

It used to be cut and dried. We walked into a store and bought a 7-inch single or videocassette if we liked a song or movie. None of us had the means to reproduce it in the sort of numbers that would hurt copyright holders too much. But nowadays, an eleven-year-old on the family PC can copy and distribute anything to billions of otherwise paying customers.
