<nettime> Goldilocks


"What we need is balance. In Sweden we have one word that I have not
encountered outside of Sweden. The word is "lagom" and it defines the space 
between too much and too little. What we need is lagom copyright protection 
for computer programs."

Mikael Pawlo

In English, we usually refer to the Goldilocks principle -- not too hot, not 
too cold, just right, etc. And I know that astronomers use the same concept 
to refer to those planets in other solar systems that could conceivably 
foster life forms -- the Goldilocks zone.
