BBCtorrents and some bits

Television: Tony Bowden: BBCtorrent? ‘Later this month, the BBC will launch a pilot project that could lead to all television programmes being made available on the internet.’ I have my fingers firmly crossed here. This could be really excellent news. Of course, not being located in the UK could make it not-so-easy to actually watch them from here, but the underlying thinking is really cool.

Tech: LayerOne. Weekend conf in LA, with Danny O’Brien — think I might just tag along!

Patents: Posting this here so I can find it in future. Here’s a /. comment saying ‘if it becomes impossible to safely develop software in the US and EU due to patents, innovation will move to India and China’. This isn’t quite true anymore — my response, noting the Brazil/Glaxo/AZT case.
