jem report: After I posted yesterday's call for stories from or about people who claim to have had comment posts deleted from Groklaw, I received an email from Pamela Jones asking me why I was "doing this." Since such a question presumes a certain level of conspiracy, I replied that the call for stories is self-explanatory. The next email I got on the subject was from Ziff Davis Enterprise editor Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols.

degreetutor.com: Remember a time when doing research required us to have to go to the library? Your school had one, and that's probably where you spent most of your library time at. The depth a library can have can range greatly; it all depends on how much money that library gets in funding. Open source software is free for anyone to have.

modfree.org: The old question always used to be if linux will ever be as widely used as Windows. For years there were always comments on how Linux was ready for the desktop and getting more and more popular. Well, Ubuntu is clearly the Borg of Linux, users are being converted quicker than a Scientology rally.
