Jeremy Allison on Free Software

Jeremy Allison has penned an excellent article for ZDNet: The Low Point--a view from the Valley: The innovation game. He discusses free versus proprietary software, and the dangers of software patents.

Software is human thought, human ideas. It's as pure as music or mathematics or physics. People who promote software patents want to own the very thoughts in your head. A world with widespread software patents, globally enforced, is best described in the very prophetic words of George Orwell in 1984 describing "Big Brother": "If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face--forever."

Gamesutra Talks With Katherine Anna Kang

Gamesutra has posted a Q&A: Fountainhead's Kang Talks Orcs & Elves DS, Wii Possibilities, talking to Kang about Fountainhead, designing games with her husband John Carmack, and how things are going making cell phone games. It's good to see some of this stuff, since John doesn't make a lot of public commentary online anymore.
