So, when I was in New York on February 8th, I linked a great piece about virus writers from the New York Times. Which you can't read now, because the week of free information is up.

Luckily, two weeks later, the Observer printed the identical piece in its supplement. And the Guardian/Scott Trust are all open-source/commited to their accesible archive, so I'll be able to read it whenever I want.

Which proves my comment about the ever shrinking information village: in 1995, how would I ever have known that? Oh, wait. I would: I'd have got back from my trip and read the papers in London. Difference is, I couldn't prove it.
