I Knew That (Open Systems)

From yesterday's NYT Bits blog:

But I think we have seen the power of open and flexible computing environments over closed and specialized systems.
Really? Oh wait, that's what I wrote in my dissertation. Back in 2003 - 2004. (Note, I fully expect that dissertation link to not work, because it is Google HTML'ing a PDF that is no longer on the web, even though it works currently - clearly a cached version, and actually just the front matter - sorry I don't currently have my own URL.) And honestly a lot of people point this out. But, glad to see the meme has hit up the NYT! Spread, meme, spread...
