Correction to eWeek's PJ "Quotation"
Tuesday, February 15 2005 @ 01:00 PM EST

A lot of you have sent me this article and a purported quotation by me:

"Red Hat is by no means the poster child for open-source utopia. Some, such as Pamela Jones of Groklaw.com, argue that open-source distributors are just so many "pay-for-a-license" software companies."

First of all, I never said anything like that, ever. If you search all over Groklaw, I don't think you will be able to find a single negative word about Red Hat.

Second, the reporter did not contact me prior to publication.

Third, Red Hat offers software that comes to us under the GPL. The GPL forbids charging any fee for a license.

Not a problem, eWeek. Groklaw was born to help educate journalists. It's in our mission statement. And I'm sure you will make a correction to that article, now that you know it's not a quotation or even a thought I've ever spoken or thought.

And how about this for an idea? How about we have an arrrangement whereby you contact me if you wish to quote me on a subject, and that way we can both avoid such embarrassing moments? Sound like a plan? Just click on the little yellow envelope on the left, and presto, you will be able to email me.

Oh, and P.S. It's Groklaw.net.

UPDATE: I heard from eWeek, and they couldn't have been nicer. They just goofed, and they'll fix the story. That is as good as it gets.
