Tim Lambert has written an absolutely devastating exposé of where many of the “think tanks” who’ve been attacking open source get their funding. I find it particularly interesting how so many of these lobbyist organizations illegally masquerading as non-profits seem to choose libertarian/laissez-faire kinds of names like “Defenders of Property Rights” and “Association for Competitive Technology” and “Small Business Survival Committee” because, after all, we all know open source is a communist plot, right? I guess we know what “competitive” really means to these people, and it’s not the definition you’ll find in the dictionary. Perhaps the best part, though, is where Lambert smoothly mentions that he has placed asterisks next to the names of the organizations that use open source software to run their websites.
