I’ve gotten a few mails asking me to weigh in on the whole “Open Source Boob Project” kerfuffle, and I’m not sure why, because as of this writing “theferrett” has already realized that the idea was very, very bad and would inevitably just lead to very, very bad things happening. This does not surprise me, because although I am not a regular reader of his, I know he’s both intelligent and married, and can therefore presume that the idea was, much like Marxism, a theory borne of good intentions without bothering to take into account the actual obvious consequences.
That having been said, my response to those people – mostly men – still pushing the scheme as workable is thus: if you really want to touch boobs that badly, go open a phonebook and turn to the very first page of business numbers. You will have your choice of escort agencies to choose from, and I am fairly sure some simple boob-touching will likely come very cheap and also be a pleasant break from your escort’s usual work environment.
 Also because I am such a fixture on the con scene, you know, so clearly my opinion is totally warranted.
