...and who speak Esperanto and have a fondness for sci-fi jokes.
I dunno, the whole ad campaign seems like a nerd-for-hire
selloff. BUT, I am perfectly willing to grow a great big Unix beard,
wear birkenstocks and white socks, put on some Blackface and jive and
shuck for Mistuh Innuhlockituh if it means IBM would go in with both
feet on, say, patents, copy unprotection, and defense of fair use.
I spent yesterday afternoon in the sun under the Grief for Garfield
statue in Golden Gate Park drinking organic beer and cursing the
dastardly anarchists who brought down our nation's leader. Anyways,
the upshot is that I missed this thingy. Are they going to do more?
