Cites & Insights 6:3 available

Cites & Insights 6:3, February 2006, is now available for downloading.

The PDF issue is 22 pages long. Each section except "My Back Pages" is also available in HTML, with links on the C&I home page.

This issue includes the following essays:

  • Followup Perspective: Beyond 'Library 2.0 and "Library 2.0"' - A few comments on posts since 5 p.m. January 6--and brief notes on what I believe is happening now, and why C&I probably won't be covering it extensively.

  • ©4 Perspective: Analog Hole and Broadcast Flag - Recent activity around the Broadcast Flag (a bad idea that refuses to go away) and recently-introduced legislation to enable an even worse idea, closing the analog hole.

  • Library Stuff Perspective: Perceptions of Libraries and Information Resources - A few comments and criticisms of this generally first-rate 296-page OCLC report.

  • Interesting & Peculiar Products - seven of them, one of which is fortunately only a somewhat creepy idea.

  • ©2 Perspective: What NC Means to Me - Commenting on an article that attacks Creative Commons NC (Non-Commercial) license, a proposed set of guidelines for interpreting NC--and my own added permissions to those apparently granted by NC.

  • Trends & Quick Takes - Four trends.

  • My Back Pages - A baker's dozen.
