Eben Moglen on life in the jungle

I sent a short note to Eben Moglen listing my recent posts. Here is his reply:


Thanks, Dave, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and
consideration. Your criticisms of the harshness of the role I played
this afternoon are well-taken, and my only plea in defense is that
lawyering in contentious circumstances is an exercise in theater.
Even gentlemen sometimes have to talk a little tougher than they
really are in private life. Your forbearance is generous.

All my best,
Eben


I also forwarded my note to Eben to rms with the following preface:


Richard,

You are indeed fortunate to have Eben at your side.

As are all of us in the free software community.

thanks,
dave


and got back a reply indicating he is on the road and will respond as soon as he can.
