Physician, heal thyself!
Hmm, I saw this post
in the morning. While I am not a fan of the national rag myself, in this instance, mainstream journalism clearly got their facts right. So I wrote this comment on his blog.
"Free software does not equate to open source. One good example of free software that isn’t open source include Google Docs, or pretty much most of the Google Apps. Please editor, check Wikipedia the next time something like this lands on your desk."
Ah, actually, the author could have been using "free software" the way the FSF uses it. While not precisely synonymous with the term "open source" as defined by the OSI, it's pretty close.
Ironically, you could have found this information on the wikipedia article on free software. :)
Even more ironically, it was moderated. One would have thought that someone railing about the lack of journalistic quality in mainstream media would have been less quick to censor on his own blog, but that's by the by. The primary irony here was that he actually committed the sin he accused others of (not checking his facts). Physician, heal thyself!
Oops, my nerd rage was too hasty. Apparently the guy's blog is hooked up with Twitter, which was why some comment originally posted on Twitter appeared on the blog but the comment I posted on the blog did not appear. My bad. Sorry, motochan.
