Hey did y'all catch the article about DEC in today's Boston Globe?  KO donated
his papers to Gordon College (the same one that's also in the news, hosting a
Soulforce activist group that was turned away by every right-wing
school--never thought of KO as a right-winger but times have changed, we ask a
lot more questions about politics these days).

Well, Gerry, you and I are showing our age I guess.  I remember debating terms
of the future Gnu Public License with RMS at the tables of Hsing Hsing in
Central Square.  Unipress was a big motivator behind the GPL.  Coincidentally,
a close acquaintance of mine named Bruce Dawson created it.  It was a bit
surreal, having a legal battle between a housemate and a coworker.

Googling these is fun.  Dawson's current resume: .  Stallman's:

Turns out these days my politics are closer to Stallman's than Olsen's.  Times
have really changed...;-)

Now back to 2007... think I'll go pluck a couple of gray hairs and try to
forget 68020 cross-compiler internals.  ;-)
