j0_77 On Line Public Domain Books :0) (9) RE: On Line Public Domain Books :0) 18 Oct 99

Hey keep em rolling - love the links - postscript hmmm please elaborate :0)

I agree there is a need to reward people for keeping these books and typing them etc., however in view of the recent activities of certain agencies I felt obliged to somehow react. Err it may be that Public Domain books contain more errrr useful things than the others but I would not know which ones ...hmmmm seems to me a great number of investors with large holidngs in 'media' errr may prefer us to buy books instead.

It is just that the Muddie is mostly a place of acedemic activity and it seemed fitting to have online books as well as folk songs oooopz public domain folk songs. Why would any one imagine Muddie to be a threat to the junk that's printed on main stream CD I cannot imagine - no informed person would buy that anyway. It seems to me that there are different levels of culture here - ours which is mostly structured, planned, evaluated and then consumed, and - theirs which is consumed undigested and excreted as violence in the streets. Of course I would not claim to be an expert.
