   RE: [xml-dev] Who blows the whistle on Microsoft? Time to stand u p

If they have it, prior art will be trivial to find 
this time.  Jean Paoli was at a company that 
implemented the MID before he went to MS, so they 
knew and it can be proved. 

Let 'em file.  Warm running water and pipes were 
there in Pompeii waiting to be 'discovered'.

Document. Document. Document. Save ya it will.

Something to think about:  Kenneth Clark, a 
historian, said that it should have taken a 
million years of evolution for ancient Egyptians 
to evolve from primitive hunter gatherers to 
the sophisticated temple builders with an 
incredibly organized socieity.  It only took 
500 years.  Why?  What was the accelerant?

The emergence of a shared set of symbolic gods 
with a backstory that explained and mimiced a 
natural environment.  Once fedback into the 
system with every cycle of the Nile, the speed 
of integration and evolution accelerated.  Then 
it stopped.  Why?

there are at least two patents[0] which may come to haunt you.

given the .net patents, i would suspect there is already one pending  
for this particular set of plumbing.
