"I've come to talk about Leonard's latest book-in-progress, which only exists on-line, and is currently called The Free Software Project. But Leonard, characteristically, only wants to talk Linux."
"Because Leonard's influence stretches so far across the open source world, I had already heard this relatively obscure tale about Salon's NT computer crashes (too many people trying to access that Henry Hyde story), and Leonard's subsequent push for a switch to Linux. Bob McMillan, editor-in-chief of Linux Magazine had brought it up at a press conference several months ago."
"Along with Salon's managing editor Scott Rosenberg, Leonard is responsible for creating what is possibly the world's first technoculture think-tank, where engineers work alongside writers to make high technology useful and elegant, complicated but accessible. And Leonard's advocacy of free, open source software gives this think tank its moral imperative."
