I saw this article. It's great that it has a front page splash box with a
picture of Bill Gates in the top right hand corner. The Chron really gave
this top billing. That is in itself a digital tipping point.
However, the story leaves a lot to be desired. With all due respect to
Carrie Kirby, she really doesn't know all that much about open source; or
she had to really dumb down the article for the purpose of being "neutral."
I am planning to scan the front page of the hard copy, because the Chron's
on-line version really doesn't match the prominence of the front-page
placement given to the hard copy. If anyone wants to receive a copy of the
scanned version, please raise your hand!
Thanks for this info, Vince.
