Paperwork

If someone had told me about the sheer volume of paperwork involved in a publishing enterprise, I might have thought twice. Licenses, taxes, contracts, schedules, invoices, A/P, and A/R: no one loves this stuff, exactly, but it's vital if even a wee little hobby publication is to survive and prosper. So, I'm learning to loves the paperwork. Ugh.

To compensate, I'm enjoying the simple pleasures of editing, and even more so the joy of working with communal enterprises (as discussed today on the Technium). Kevin Kelly has thought through many of the issues that Wikipedia encounters, and that smaller hiveminds like Open Design run into all the time. Recommended.

Cover song of the week: Ooedo no Hikeshi, a composition by Deepu Purpru (hat tip: scarlettina).

I just realized I'm not on your friends list so you didn't see this link I posted.

Here it is steampunk keyboards, laptops and computers. I thought of you!

Oooh, I do like his work, I think he's been boing boing'ed a couple times. Nice keyboards, especially.

And clearly, it is time for me to update the Friends list. ;)

::chuckle:: Credit where credit is due: bhagwanx included it on his LJ, which is where I found it. Glad you enjoyed it--thought you might.

I also enjoyed the article immediately below that, which discussed ways that internet content still has value beyond data. (One of which was Patronage.)
