Currently playing song: “Well Well Well” by John Lennon on Plastic Ono Band. Good old John. I can always count on him to do some primal screaming for me when I can’t.
Regardless of how you feel about software patents, it’s always cool when one of your friends gets recognized for his work in a very public way, as my friend Jay did with this press release about his patent (#6,295,536) relating to enterprise data transfer. The irony is that Jay left American Management Systems about a year before I did and so receives no benefit from this patent.
Busy this morning, but I couldn’t resist following up on an earlier entry about my friend Greg and his work on Cathy Woolard’s Atlanta campaign. He just IM’d me to say she won the runoff. Unfortunately, no thanks to Andrew Young, who weighed in at the eleventh hour with a lovely letter to the editor (sorry, timebombed link) in which he made thinly veiled accusations of the openly gay candidate’s campaign hurting “our communities, our children, and our senior citizens.”
