The VCR watches TV for you !

I really like this quote from Douglas Adams, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency :

“Take the VCR, for example. Not only can it watch TV for you, it can watch more channels and watch them better than you can. Similarly, the Electric Monk does your believing for you. Instead of having to wade through mountains of propaganda, you’d tell your Electric Monk to pick a few random hopeless causes each week.”

The book The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Publishing Science Fiction (written by Cory Doctorow and Karl Schroeder and published by Alpha Books)seems to be a good reference… a starting point to write something during my spare time 🙂

Additionally (I don’t know if you notice that this post is total chaos), I’ve discovered that the “copyleft” concept I fancy exists : The Creative Commons “is devoted to expanding the range of creative work available for others to build upon and share” CC proposes to share creative works, different licenses are opened. Cory Doctorrow’s book “Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom” is a cool example.
