  • I have loved these paper-thin metal page markers ever since I first discovered them in the US over a decade ago. I’m delighted to find they are now available in the UK (and thus in plenty of Europe too) via Amazon. If you’d like me to send you one to try, just ask and I’ll mail one to you at the weekend.
  • Useful article from Brian about the language used in the European Interoperability Framework. The document is clearly confused and the result of diverse political pressures. On balance I think it’s a sign of progress, and that the language used indicates that terms applied to patents in standards must allow open source implementation, but there’s no doubt it could have been much clearer. Presumably it wasn’t clearer because the political cost of doing so was too high.
