Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0916  Re: Criticism on the Web

May I raise the question of plagarism from a different angle?

I'd love to share more of my ideas on the net, through papers from my
word processor and verbally. I'm not that interested in finding my way
into refereed journals, it takes time and effort, and anyway I'd like to
retain copyright.  My only problem is, how do I establish priority?

Sending material to oneself in a registered envelope isn't very
foolproof.  You would need to show you hadn't tampered with the envelope
and you would need reliable witnesses when you opened it.  The second
and possibly the first of these problems applies to material left in
solicitors' safes and in bank vaults.

Is there a printed journal, with appropriate circulation, where for a
modest sum I could place brief synopses, even keywords, of my findings?
Or does anyone have any other suggestions?  If there's a solution to
this problem it could only increase the amount of good ideas on the web.

Ed Pixley's student is mistaken about "God speed".  It means "may God
bring you success" [at whatever you do].  But like "Goodbye", which is
from "God be with you," it long before our time lost its original
meaning, and is, indeed, in this context just what the Folger edn. says
it is: "a conventional greeting"

Tell your student to look at  a concordance to Shak. and note that many
of the "speed"s clearly mean "succeed".

Cheers (and good speed)

Subject:        BBC Distribution Petition: a Reminder

For those of you who might have missed my first posting, I am in the
middle of composing a petition to BBC to convince them to start
distributing their Shakespeare titles for home video use in NTSC
format.  At the moment, none of their titles are available at a
reasonable rate, and I need as many requests for their titles as we can
muster.  So send me your wish lists (send requests directly to me at

  ), and spread the word around - the more responses, the
more sway we will have as a group.  Tell your colleagues, your students,
your third cousins-twice-removed.  I hope to submit a master list to BBC
within the next week or so, and I will be going to NYC in November to
follow up.

Many thanks to the people who have already submitted their names and
titles to the petition.  For all of you who made requests for alternate
Renaissance titles (i.e., those not specific to Shakespeare), thank you
too.
