    Well, I pledge $20 to him whenever one gets started! He will be a hero of mine if he does get jailed!

    Only if he is jailed? In my mind, this guy is already a hero, because he _knows_ what he will do could land him in jail and yet he wans to do it anyway. Someone with so much will and so much faith and belief in a cause is a great man. Since I happen to care very much for the cause he advocates, he is a hero to me.

    Unfortunatly it looks like HP/Compaq has asked him not to go through with his plans. Since he would loose his job I can understand him backing down. Now, only if someone else was willing to do it instead!!!

    well, its my understanding that HP was paying him to do the presentation. So technically they are equally liable. Geting fired over this is probably not his idea of a good show.... I honestly cant blame him. He needs to eat too, ya know. :-\

    Too bad though.

    Someone has to be the 500lb gorilla and M$ can't be everywhere at once. So, the entertainment industry has assumed the position of King Kong and we can assume the other, less festive, position.
