my favorite conversation can be paraphrased thus: "you know the royal society? well, they offer the archives of their journal, but each download costs two dollars ($2). in december, though, they made their content available for free in an advertising gambit, so i downloaded it. all of it. about two hundred & forty thousand dollars worth ($240,000). all of it before nineteen oh eight (1908) is public domain, but the stuff from oh eight (1908) & twenty-three (1923) is tricky with international copyright law. anyhow, lets get to work transcribing it & cutting the art out, eh?"
like i said, intellectual anarchists. fun.
