I can't help feeling that IBM's current position at the forefront of the corporate blogging wave has much to do with the fact that you “got” free software well before most major computer companies. I was very struck by IBM's evident depth of understanding in this area when I interviewed you for my book Rebel Code (thanks again for the great quotations you provided).

This relationship between open source and open content (which embraces blogs, wikis, open access etc.) is something that I explore in my own blog at http://opendotdotdot.blogspot.com/. Another area worth mentioning in this context is what I call “open genomics” - essentially bioinformatics. Again, I don't think that it is a coincidence that IBM is very active here, too.
