I have 3 separate installations of this man's software, which was free. The
contribution made by this man (before he joined Microsoft) continues to be
seen while the 'Wikipedia factor' probably surpasses all others in terms of
prominence. How else can knowledge be managed without bias? That type of
collaborative, Web-based technology probably marked the beginning of social
networks and the social Web.

It is nice to hear that 6 months ago he ditched Microsoft, merely joining a
large number of other deserters from the high levels. But not to worry.
Microsoft recruits innocent men and women for its bright future (May 18th):
