Here’s some good news: I just handed in my PPE thesis. Total: 17 185 words, 45 pages double spaced, 11 415 meant for writing. Lesson: don’t write about subjects that you’re not passionate about.

Further topics for exploration now: copyright and intellectual protection law. I need to really do some research on this soon, but I think that we think too much that our ideas are my own and that I therefore own them. Naaahh. They’re non-rivalrous and non-scarce, so they shouldn’t be protected. The protection comes after the idea creation, not the other way around. Ideas should be shared, tinkered with, passed on for someone smarter to improve on, and played with. Something. Okay I’m going to sleep.
