That's a bit short-sighted, don't you think? Do you similarly think we shouldn't attempt to preserve the works of Beethoven or Picasso? There may not be a great cosmic truth contained in many different works of art but that doesn't mean there isn't irreplaceable creative value in it.
That's not to say that every game was noteworthy, but there are some that are worthy of preservation, not because of nostalgia but because they have value inof themselves.
You're right, people who don't understand the difference between open source and a licensing agreement might make bad decisions, but those people aren't^H^H^H^H^H shouldn't be making decisions about that sort of thing without imput from their tech/IP folks.
This is a non-issue. Blizzard isn't forcing you to use your real First Last name, it's just forcing you to provide *a* first/last name. Put another way, with time codes it's impossible to prove your identity to blizzard, so you can pretend to be anyone you want with little chance they can enforce ULA or other contractual obligations.

GMGruman writes: On July 14, Microsoft will stop offering security patches for its six-year-old Service Pack 2 edition of Windows. Already, headlines are screaming "red alert" doom and gloom scenarios for the 77 percent of businesses who still use XP SP2 on some computers. That's nonsensical fearmongering, blogs InfoWorld's Galen Gruman. XP SP2 will be no more or less secure after July 15 than it is now, and organizations not yet ready to be move to Windows 7 don't need to be stampeded into doing so by such scare stories: Upgrading to the free SP3 provides security updates from Microsoft until April 2014. So much for "red alert."
An anonymous reader writes: A Symantec study revealed that despite news headlines, teens are providing more information than they should with strangers: 69 percent of 13-17 year olds have updated their status on social networking sites to include their physical location. Girls are more likely than boys to chat with people online that they don’t know in the offline world. Approximately two in five teens say they don’t tell their parents what they do while they are online (42 percent) and that they would change their online behavior if they knew their parents were watching (36 percent).
An anonymous reader writes: Sir James Dyson, of vacuum fame, has just unveiled two new bladeless fans that work upon the same principle as a jet engine, sucking air into a cyclone accelerator that amplifies it 15 to 18 times before blowing it out over an airfoil-shaped ramp. The new units significantly upgrade the diminutive scale of their previously unveiled Air Multiplier, making them "the opening salvo" in the inventor's "war on air conditioning". It's a valiant effort, considering that the average American household already uses 2,822 kWh of energy each year to cool off, spending $276 a year.
