Some Special Praise

I am working on some articles, but someone sent me this, and I decided to violate my usual policy of not mentioning it when Groklaw is named in a story, because this one is so special -- and it's about you, too -- that I wanted to share the pleasure I felt when I read it. So here you are, from Newsforge today, John O'Sullivan's list of winners and losers in the SCO saga:

"Groklaw -- Winner

How did we ever get by without this site? Groklaw is the kind of thing I always dreamed the Internet would enable: A place where you can get not only the important documents, but informed and educational commentary as well. The site's authors have devoted an enormous amount of time and effort to the cause. Their efforts have resulted in a well-informed community response to SCO. Rather than just invective, critics have had tangible legal logic to counter SCO's FUD."

I don't know about you, but I was on emotional overload all day, exhausted from working late into the night on the transcript and with a really bad taste in my mouth from SCO's antics yesterday, and it certainly felt good to read this article. There's a lot more in it, because it isn't about Groklaw, of course, as its central theme, but I can't seem to focus on anything else but that one paragraph just yet. : ) He totally gets what we are trying to do. I hope he is right. Thanks, Raja, for sending it to me. Enjoy, everyone.
