Ken Brown's "interviews"

Microsoft/AdTI's Samizdat quotes text from Charles Mills and Henry Jones. The comments are basically about the question of whether it is useful to companies for their engineers to be involved in open source projects.

Brown cites them as, for example, Mills, Charles, interview with AdTI, Apr 14 2004. One is given to believe that AdTI interviewed these people in person, on the phone, or by email.

I found out today that in fact the text is taken, without permission or attribution, from a bulletin board at SoftwareCEO.com [registration required].

I think it's bad form to cast comments on a bulletin board as an interview, to reprint in a book comments made to a semi-private forum, to misconstrue comments. Orndorff agreed to SoftwareCEO.com's terms-of-service, which he violated by reprinting text.
