The blog of the wandering douche

For recognition of the inhumane, thoughtless, greedy, and the negligent. And douchebags.

While we’re on the topic of the USA

There’s a great article in the Guardian about a US political lobby group called the International Intellectual Property Alliance, the subject of this swift Saturday-afternoon Douche nomination. They’re throwing their obese weight around, trying to persuade Indonesia to not do what it has every right to decide to do. I do like the rather dramatic headline that BoingBoing put on it (Cory Doctorow to the rescue!). Slashdot too, summarises well with a comments forum full of nerd vitriol and pizza-stuffed apathy, which degenerates quickly into an argument over the semantics of AAARRRRRRR (as in, ME HEARTIES). Leave it to 4Chan to fight the power guys…they seem to uhhh…actually do something.
