Can we tie them to the tracks and run them over with a Cluetrain

lots of people have tried. I did, a few years ago, when trying to figure out if I could implement LZW compression in the freely available Python imaging library (PIL). they told me "if people don't pay you for your services, they're not your customers. if you offer free services, you're stupid". when I asked them if I could publish that mail, they threatened to sue me for copyright violation.

on the other hand, I suspect that the very fact that a computer company like Unisys is still alive proves that evolution doesn't work under all circumstances...
