You can't copyright a title

Tipped off by my old buddy and collaborator Levi Asher, I learned that Meg Whitman and her as-told-to coauthor do in fact favor recycling, at least when it comes to book titles:

hey, i was here first!

Since I own the domain called thepowerofmany.com, I’m thinking about redirecting it somewhere interesting at least through election day. Any suggestions?

    Whitman is a climate change denialist, so something like these?

    – Climate Change: a summary of the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report, GreenFacts.org: http://www.greenfacts.org/en/climate-change-ar4/index.htm

    – Environmental Protection Agency Global Warming Site: http://www.epa.gov/oppeoee1/globalwarming/index.html

    – Practical guide to support the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol: http://www.entico.org/

    Or for more (deserved) snark use these, since she fails to see any issue with jocking another’s style:

    – Essential Skills for the Digital Journalist: http://www.poynter.org/seminar/seminar.asp?id=5235

    – Needs no explanation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_infringement#Text

    – Nor does this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academic_dishonesty

    these are great ideas

    i suppose the ideal thing would be a link to an constantly updated feed of whitman-debunking posts…

    The youtube video about her being a big fan of Van Jones might be effective.

    Or maybe We The People.org (wtp.org). Hee hee hee, funny teabaggers, somebody beat you to that idea 20 years ago, too. I wonder who?
