Open Letter to Brin & Page
By Sam Hiser - Dec 14, 2004
I urge you to consider leveraging the free resources available and trust you already have the motivation, the people and resources under your employ to create something durable and important for people all over the world. One way to move ahead is by scanning the works of the libraries of Stanford, Oxford, Harvard, the University of Michigan, the New York Public Library and others into the OASIS "OpenDocument" File Format of the OpenOffice desktop office suite.

By Dave Whitinger - Mar 12, 2004
In a recent journal entry at Advogato, Michael Love, the founder and lead developer of GNU-Darwin has posted a reminder of GNU-Darwin's disapproval of U.S. policy.
