At the same time (same place actually, different time unit) I’ve been reading about transclusion — Ted Nelson’s term for the inclusion of data in a document (webpage) that is only referenced by a hyperlink not actually copied and pasted. As a wiki contributor commented, what if links were copyrighted? What would the realworld (fleshworld) version of such copyrighting be? Perhaps the holding of a partner’s hand could be permitted only if in lawful relationship (de-facto, marriage)? What about telepathy, or knowing what someone is going to say beforehand? Could that be a crime? Would everyone have to script their own way of introducing someone — could conjunctions be outlawed? Would we no-longer be able to refer to something someone had said creating the need for a person you want to be present and say it themselves? If everyone only said and did things that were truly original then evolution would dictate that we only have 1 human as we know it and a whole lotta other types of (one-only) species…Link or Die.
