Hi patent pool people,

   I just wrote an editorial on Advogato about patents and free
software. I figured you might be interested in it because your name
was on the informal mailing list Karsten Self set up for software
patent discussion. Apologies for the spam.

   The editorial is at:

   Advogato requires certification to respond to comments. Please feel
free to mail me (or anyone else on Advogato you know) for
certification. You're supposed to be a free software developer, but
"Apprentice" status is pretty flexible :)
