Sandals, ponytails cramp open source

Peter Quinn, until recently CIO of Massachussets, blames the "sandal and ponytail set" for the slow adoption of open source software in government. Doesn't he realise that Richard Stallman goes barefoot these days?

"Open source has an unprofessional appearance, and the community needs to be more business-savvy in order to start to make inroads in areas traditionally dominated by commercial software vendors."

This could the opportunity that Lena Nalbach and I have been waiting for on our latest TV show pitch: Pimp My Geek. Any production companies out there listening? (Next show to go into production: Pimp My Bride).
