An Open-Source Lightning Rod

One weekend back in December, Marc Fleury was hunched over his computer, absorbed in writing a fervent, almost preachy and completely self-serving blog about why IBM (IBM ) and BEA Systems Inc. (BEAS ) will never be able to best his tiny but growing open-source company, JBoss Inc. His 6-year-old daughter walked up to him and asked: "Daddy, why are you still working on a Sunday? Is IBM still after you?" He laughed and replied: "Yes, darling...but now a whole industry is ganging up on us."

Microsoft Fallout: Rep. DeLay Won't Seek Reelection

We received an email from Dr. Nelson this evening alerting us to the pending resignation of Tom DeLay. Dr. Nelson serves as an advocate for unemployed technology workers who have lost their jobs as a result of cheap labor furnished by H-1B workers. He has found that Microsoft lobbied for increases in worker Visa programs while obliterating the workforce protections of the Age Discrimination In Employment Act of 1967, as Amended. The Act designates U.S. citizens over age 40 as a "protected class" so designated to insure US supremacy in the field of technology innovation.

Many believe that Microsoft's intent in lobbying for H1B Visas had more to do with destroying the pool of knowledgeable programmers and administrators familiar with the UNIX operating system than in finding technology workers.

You can visit Dr. Nelson's web site to find extensive research and information putting our friends in Redmond in the forefront of the DeLay-Abramoff affair. Meanwhile, we will continue to monitor these events with the help of Dr. Nelson.

Spencer is the inventor of Asterisk, a free software program that establishes phone calls over the Internet and handles voicemail, caller ID, teleconferencing and a host of novel features for the phone. With Asterisk loaded onto a computer, a decent-size company can rip out its traditional phone switch, even some of its newfangled Internet telephone gear, and say good-bye to 80% of its telecom equipment costs. Not good news for Cisco, Nortel or Avaya.
