Yesterday, I met Douglas Krone the CEO of Dynamism. (I forgot my phone at home so couldn't take his picture.) Dynamism is an awesome company that takes all of the coolest gadgets from around the world, localizes them into English and sells them on the Internet. They provide support for these devices. Most high-end gadget geeks that I know have at one time or another purchased stuff from Dynamism.

Anyway, we talked a lot about gadgets, blogs and Creative Commons. I got him to agree that it would make sense to put a Creative Commons license on his site so that people could use pictures of products and clips of his text to review products. I think that his stuff is PERFECT for blogs.

Joi - what's interesting about this is at the same time, the EU seems to be closing it's doors to allowing products from other countries - not only by using laws against parallel-importing, but also though case-law. Sony's recent win against the mod-chippers in the UK was interesting in that the judge seemed to imply that if something wasn't specifically licensed for the UK you have no right to own or use that product (that and the fact that Sony claimed that displaying the game output on a TV was also contributory copyright infringement, which the judge threw out)

erm, do you need to buy stuff from dynamism? i mean, he is selling cool stuff made in japan :-)

You're right, it's perfect for blogs. Um. I hope I'm not in trouble for blogging about it before, but the images were too kawai not to use.
