  1. Hi Michael –

    I know I’m late to this post but wow.  Thank you for sharing the video about social evolution.  I believe we all strive to be unique in this world, but it’s tricky. I know I struggle wanting to build on what I learn from others and bring my own experience into the mix without appearing like an echo.  And link bait is a term I wish never existed.  This video helped me in countless ways to see that it’s a natural part of the process of the evolution of ideas.  I did not know the history of intellectual property but well aware of the current day issues from my own experiences.  It’s one thing to steal, it’s another to spread ideas. As you did here, a genuine sharing of creative ideas you find valuable makes us all more informed.  Who the heck knows where the laws will take us, but this was a great lesson for me.
