"Meetzilla Update (Information about Mozilla meetings) by David Boswell

There is a conference next week in Washington DC about open source in government that is being held on the GWU campus. There are three different presentations about Mozilla on the schedule:"

I belive its the braindead Tony Stanco who is allowing Microsoft to present their warped shared source plan at the conference your going to. Being that MS does not believe in or practice Open Source, never mind the fact that shared source is NOT an accepted open source program, the fact that they're allowed to prevert this open source conference is bizarre to say the least. I can see it all going down now....

MS speaker: "You should use our Open, I mean "Shared" source software". Mozspeaker: "Isn't your shared source policy one that doesn't allow anyone to both look at and modify your code and doesn't meet any of the recognized definitions of Open Source?" MS speaker: Runs away

Some people say MS should be allowed to go so that people can hear "both sides". I say feel free to heckle/and or throw rotten fruit.
