| Open Standards: Principles and Practice. One of the problems Bruce
| Perens is [4]facing when he is representing SPI and Debian in various
| standards organisations is that every one of them has a different
| definition of an Open Standard. Almost all standards organizations
| allow the incorporation of software patents, discriminatory licensing,
| or other features that seriously damage the "open-ness" of the
| standard. Thus, Bruce is [5]presenting to you the first draft of
| [6]Open Standards: Principles and Practice with a link for the
| disucssion list.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
