The McElroys have achieved re-known as Open Source visionaries with interviews by Interactive Week, Infoworld, Fortune Technology, Open magazine, and others.

Re: almost a message


I understand your concern that my response has been delayed. I hope you
understand that given my schedule I have limited time to respond in a
way that reflects the depth of my thought (and feelings) on this
matter. If you are patient for a bit longer, I will reward you with an
adequate reply.

cheek sort of way.

Way"
