I just had to pipe in on this one...

While ESR has some ego issues (unlike everyone on this list, of course :-),
he does provide a useful role of a "Speaker to Animals" in giving us
corporations something to react to. As was mentioned on another thread,
the community is so divided that it is hard to get any sort of read on
anything. ESR and OSI give at least one reasonable perspective, especially
(which everyone seems to have ignored) when he enlists some other big names
along with him.
