ongoing · Boston ODF Day … there is this guy in the room from ACT who was pushing back pretty hard against the new Massachusetts policy. His arguments are lifted pretty well word for word from the Microsoft talking points …

Another amusing bit: The guy from ACT claimed to be representing lots of little guys – but – when it came to enumerating the big vendors, his pattern of speech changed. The names of all the big vendors just plain rolled off his tongue without the slightest hesitation - as though oft-repeated and much-valued by the speaker.

One might guess that the big guys (i.e. Microsoft) were of particular importance in the speaker’s mind.
