    CNN: open source software subject to fiery debate

    http://www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/industr...idg/index.html

    small quote from the article:
    Stallman had not been invited as a panelist
    hmmm, i wonder why?

    I can understand why they wouldn't want to deal with Stallman, but the idea of having a discussion about GPL and to not invite the guy who started the GPL is pretty pointless if you ask me.

    they probably didnt invite him because he looks like a freak!!!! long greesy hair and a beard out of controll

    nah i;m just kidding......

    it's typical of the press not to have a topic on something and NOT invite the person who started the whole thing to either defend himself or accept the praise of the people that like it.

    of course they should've invited him, or at least someone else who's well-known in the open-source world. But honestly, who in their right mind would invite RMS for something like that? U might as well hire him to do a monologue cuz nobody else is gonna be able to say anything if he's around
