Those clever World Wide Webbers: I noticed that YouTube automagically created a web page with brief excerpts from my blog in every place where it links to any YouTube video. That is fair use, so I can’t fault them. But I suspect that this was done by a “bot” rather than a human. Meanwhile, in a paroxysm of “cp *.*”, the marketeers at Amazon.com have created countless thousands of “Shopping Enabled” Wikipedia pages. This piqued my curiosity and I found that they had done so even for Abbie Hoffman’s Steal This Book. Well, congratulations Amazon. You’re really “Sticking it to The Man,” now! No greater irony…
