Knowledge, Learning, Community
The Globe and Mail website has a nice new refreshing design (I really like it) and appears to have abandoned the mandatory registration policy I complained so bitterly about. Readers must still pay for some content, though I think the newspaper overestimates the value of its own opinions (as do most people). So I can start linking to the paper again, albeit cautiously.

That said, it is with some irony that this article laments the way copyright restrictions have imposed corporate sensibilities on the artistic and creative community. "It's appropriate," Rankin sighs. "Our whole movie was about how corporate interests removed the Jets from Winnipeg. Now, corporate imperatives may remove our movie." For the record, it is officially the policy of this newsletter that the Jets should be returned to Winnipeg, the Nordiques to Quebec City, and the Expos to Montreal.
