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.
