Too many blogs. What to do? I wanted to put together some notes on buying and owning a home but rather than start a new blog, I am just making static Web pages for now. Once I'm up to a dozen or so pages I'll maybe rethink things.

Also working on two papers, one for the Unicode conference next Spring (on XQuery) and one for XTech 2006 (the conference is subtitled "Building Web 2.0").

fxn, yes, I agree strongly wth Tim's comments there. Before the FSF started, the Unix community used to share "public domain" software. However, I should also give Richard and the FSF credit for a unifying vision of a complete freely-available operating system -- I'll say freely available because like Tim I think the politics Free part caused some problems.

I actually do support Free software, but I also prefer to try and form consensus and agreement with all parties, and the FSF at that time wasn't known for flexible compromise. I don't think there are easy answers, though.
