GNU, GPL, Open Source Eric S. Raymond is one of the three big figures in open source, together with Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman. During a talk for the Long Island Linux User Group, he made some interesting statements about the GPL, namely that the GPL is no longer needed due to the way the open source movement works.

I can't say yea or nay on the whole IQ thing. We can measure speed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/100_meter_dash How many whites do you count here. Sure there are some in the female camp, but that's also probably a genetic thing. See any Asians? We know for sure color is hereditary. I can see where basketball might be the way it is because of environment etc. I know there are lots of white people who join track and field. So not every 'race' is equal at least in certain specific physical traits. I think to say with any authority, you would specifically have to test in a controlled way for intelligence differences between races. Throwing around IQ w/o factoring in environment is certainly flawed. But environment and IQ may be circular, hence the need for controlled testing. Which I haven't seen.
