Frank Zappa of Free Software
I heard someone quote Frank Zappa on Radiolab this morning. I hadn't heard the quote before, and it reminded me of my current view about Free Software. Frank Zappa apparently said: “Jazz isn't dead; it just smells funny”.
I'm also reminded of Terry Gross saying one of the toughest questions she ever asked a guest is asking Frank Zappa whether he liked rock'n'roll or merely had contempt for it.
I always kinda wanted to be the George Bailey of Free Software, but fact is, I'll probably be remembered more as the Frank Zappa of Free Software . Either one is probably ok with me.
 Fortunately, no one will ever call me the James Bond of Free Software. That nickname would be embarrassing.
