Mark Webbink has some new digs

Mark Webbink ain't dead yet. Indeed, he's not even limping, as his new blog suggests.

You may remember that Mark Webbink, former general counsel at Red Hat, is retiring at the end of this month. In order to maintain his level of mischief and fun, he has kicked off a new blog. I was worried about missing out on Mark's sense of humor and insight to the industry, but it looks like I worried in vain.

Already he has confirmed and extended my suspicions that IBM is desperately trying to hem in Red Hat (on both the application server side with Novell (bonne chance!) and the operating system side with Sun). He's also commented on Ubuntu and on SCO's demise.

Thanks for staying with us, Mark. I've subscribed.
