I remember hearing in the hallways back when I worked at Microsoft that Novell had some patents that were going to force Microsoft to pay attention at minimum and would force it to negotiate. I didn’t have much knowledge at the time, but it’s pretty interesting to see the announcement that’s going on right now — looks like the hallway chatter was correct. One IM’er just wrote me and said “feels like hell is freezing over.”
When a big news story like this hits, where do you go first? I go to Google News. There are already tons of stories there.

If you get to lots of conferences invariably you’ll meet Paul Mooney. He’s been to many of the world’s technical conferences and here he showed up at a political debate with his camcorder. One problem. That pissed off one of the candidates. Ahh, a good ruckus makes for good stories. Congrats Paul!
Well, not quite my brain. If he had done that he would have found a lot of Merlot-curdled fuzz.
But he did steal my OPML file to make a widget. Go ahead, steal my OPML. Just don’t take Maryam or else I’ll be a lonely loser instead of just a loser. 🙂
