On Thursday night I gave a talk at the Byam Shaw Library, part of Central St Martins, called The Copy Continuum, about the way we perceive copying and how we might consider the world in context of shanzhai culture. It was part of The Piracy Project, a series of events about the organised by the lovely folk of AND Publishing, who kindly invited me to share some thoughts with the audience. Thanks to them, and thanks to you if you came to join in — I hope you had a good time.
Anyway, I’ll put the slides up at some point in the future (moving house right now, so things are a bit chaotic) but here are some of the links I promised to audience members for further reading. I’m presenting them roughly in the order they came up in the talk itself.
· My interview with the Pirate Bay, The Guardian, 2007
· A good piece from Time magazine profiling four profiling four men who ‘stole the world’, including BitTorrent’s creator, Bram Cohen — they’re sort of representative, in different ways, of a generation of angry young pirates.
· Court jails Pirate Bay founders, BBC, 2009
· Mark Twain’s prodigious work rate
· Some information about the Paige Compositor
· Mark Twain’s nutty plan to extend copyright, BoingBoing
· My article on Jan Chipchase and China’s shanzhai culture, Wired, 2010
· Chipchase’s blog
· The New York Times on the explosion of lawsuits in the mobile phone industry
· Regretsy on the Urban Outfitters copying outrage
· The Economist discusses 3D printing
· A TED talk featuring Anthony Atala, who discusses printing new organs
And that’s it for now. I’ll add some more stuff when the slides go up.
