On a personal note...

Recently, I had one of those "life's getting in the way" moments. In fact, it was the whole day. It left me very disturbed with the outcome of a project I had hoped to have finished and presently running. But things didn't turn out that way, and I wrote one of my friends ranting about my current misery.

Now mind you, this is someone who has known for about 20 years now. In fact, he says he knew me longer than that. We just hadn't formed a friendship until years after our being...

Have you ever wondered what a society driven by Linux or open-source would look like? Are you limited to thinking the other guys will always rule the world?
