Free at last
Five signs that freedom of all kinds is in fashion this week.
2. Information is a lot freer in Washington thanks to Data.gov
3. An ambitious and noble endeavour -- also on the freedom-of-information front -- was launched here in Canada.
4. Chris Anderson, editor of Wired Magazine and author of the Long Tail, has a new book coming out: Free: The Past and Future of a Radical Price. One thing, though. It's not free. Cost: $23.09 at ChaptersIndigo.
5. Interest-free credit cards! Well, for a 21-day grace period, under changes introduced yesterday by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty.
