You cannot copyright a Tweet

Though this may not completely eliminate liability if a publisher or artist rewraps a whole series of your tweets in a different shell, Zeldman makes an interesting point on the limitations of copyright in regards to short phrases (i.e. tweets): As messages sent via Twitter cannot be longer than 140 characters, they cannot be copyrighted.… Continued

Welcome, Wired. We call this land "Internet"

Interesting take on the future of Wired (mag vs. website). Wired is great print, but if the magazine can’t make money and is shuttered, taking the website down with it, I’m going to be livid.

xScope 2

Simply put, xScope is a back-pocket, time-saving utility for designers and developers created by designers who understand the nature of working on screen.
