I am delighted that David has received this overdue recognition for his
outstanding services to the midrange community. In fact he's probably done
more than anyone to make that word "community" a reality, and I'd like to
add my own congratulations to the chorus. However, IBM sponsorship would
invalidate the last 2 paragraphs of the monthly guidelines.

There is an old saying: "Who pays the piper calls the tune". For me its
complete independence is a key feature of midrange-l. How do you think our
perception of it would be altered once it had IBM dollars behind it? I don't
want it to become just an organ for IBM.

I agree, IBM should definitely be sponsoring some part of this.
