More Catching Up

- An interesting new paper (PDF) argues that the optimal term for copyright protection is 14 years, which sounds (intuitively) just about right to me. More at ars technica, via Slashdot.

- The July Avid Collector is up, full of good bookish things as usual.

- Matt Raymond at LCBlog rounds up some of the recent debate about simplying library classification systems.

- Noah at The Millions comments on Neal Stephenson's massive Baroque Cycle trilogy, bouncing off a recent John Derbyshire review of the books.

- Ed visited the Edgar Alan Poe house in Philadelphia and files this report.
