Verizon President & COO doesn't know about open source

LAS VEGAS -- I just got out of a Q&A session with Verizon Communications
President and COO Denny Strigl and being an open source guy I asked
Strigl about open source. Specifically I asked what role does open
source play at Verizon now, especially in light of the recent SFLC
lawsuit against Verizon on GPL infringement.

Strigl looked at me with a blank face and asked me to repeat my
question. He was completely clueless.

He then asked one of his PR people to answer, and they too were

In December of 2007 the Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC) filed its GPL
lawsuit, whichwas settled in March of this year. The win was hailed as a
victory for open source by the SFLC and others.

Apparently though open source types (like myself) thought the Verizon
thing was a big deal, it apparently never reached the radar screen of
Verizon's top exec. Go figure.

be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
