Another amature 'journalist'....

After spanking Dan publicly I gave him the benefit of the doubt that his apology was sincere.
I was wrong. He's done nothing but denigrate the hard working professionals in the FOSS community.

FOSS is about the scientific approach to software IMHO. Such expectations are demanded in medical research for example but it's humorous why they would not be so in software development. In FOSS, open peer review is the norm. Lyons and the idiots at Forbes (Tim you still never showed up for our online debate) still have no clue what the scientific method and accountability are about.

I rank them right up there with the idiots at Readers Digest who just published an article that you should not take Vitamins A, C, E, Omega Acids and other antioxidants. Complete unscientific hogwash. Not to mention the fact that they have over 6 pages of ads by big pharma in their magazines. Kind of like C/ZD-Net and their Microsoft ads.... I mean articles.

Kind of like the SCO case and their rabid supporters in the media.

Cheers,

Nicholas Donovan
