Daniel, great stuff.

I'm producing slide presentation for the Jan 15, 2004
NAMM show at Anahiem, California. This presentation is
for a commercial product but a fair portion of it
focuses on LAD/LAU, GPL. The angle is why Open Source
produces quality software and why it's a good
investment for end users and commercial interests.

I would be interested in reading a document that
describes what this community considers appropriate
commercial usage and ideal participation between
business interests and the LAD/LAU community. I
imagine it could be a brief document. This is a topic
I need to discuss at NAMM. Whether any Open Source
community should write such a document isn't entirely
clear to me--Open Source licenses are their for a
reason. Perhaps it's best if I write something based
on my interpretations.

I think it's good that Linux Audio will be represented
at the Sounds Expo. It seems like an interesting time
to begin presenting LAD/LAU and carefully defining and
presenting the spirit of this community.
