My media week 24/10/10

If you are interested in intellectual property issues I recommend The time is up, publishers. Book piracy is about to arrive on a massive scale.  And in Prospect Tom Chatfield looks at the e-book revolution and asks Do writers need paper?

The BBC/British Museum collaborative project A History of the World in 100 Objects finally finished this week. The final object, which was chosen by the listeners, was a Solar-powered lamp and charger.

On Reason.tv  Zack Lynch looked at How Neuroscience Will Change the World.

This article by Brendan O’Neil looks at the Chilean miners from a different angle – the role of the therapy industry: Chile: solidarity wins out over psychobabble.

Finally The Daily Mash has THATCHER GAINING STRENGTH FROM NATION’S MISERY.
