newsgaming is interesting

Ideological Games: September 12th. Gonzalo Frascaâs Newsgaming outfit has posted the September 12th game.

It is quite interesting, but I think it has the problem that I wrote about earlier, that its ideology has a cartoonish clearness (the war on terror is evil, end of story). I like to see doubt in things like these. … [The Ludologist]

Women Without Borders

because i maintain the servers that the Feminist Theory Website exists on, and defacto i support that project(and if anyone wants to help do updates let me know, it's an open project), i occasionally get interesting things sent to me, like I'm subscribed to women without borders or frauen ohne grenzen, which sent me an update leading with:

“We were born with the genetic advantage that the gaining of status and the fear of losing power does not constantly get in the way.”

Maria Schaumayr

and my problem is that being a woman is not a genetic disadvantage, it may be a social, cultural, or otherwise believed disadvantage, but not a genetic one to the best of my knowledge, unless they mean something else by genetic, which is possible i guess. In any case, if you are interesting women's policy worldwide, try women-without-borders and let me know what you think.

Strong patent law does not foster innovation, according to a dissertation by Petra Moser, an assistant professor at MIT's Sloan School, as reported in the NY Times. She studied 19th century innovations and patents, and concludes that countries, particularly developing countries, may be better off without strong patent laws.
