This isn’t a new article – I actually stumbled across it as I was searching for an old email in my inbox. However, after having made a couple of posts last week about open access it had some renewed relevance to me. Written by Kevin Kelly, who has the great job title of “Senior Maverick” at ‘Wired’ magazine, the article looks at categories of intangible value we buy when we pay for something that we could get for free. The “generative” values he lists could help reduce fear in an arena where copies, clones, fakes and counterfeits are commonplace!
